Banned Kashmir-based terrorist organisation Hizbul Mujahideen has claimed responsibility for the suicide attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in Srinagar's Benima area on Wednesday that killed at least five jawans and injured seven others, media reports said.
The two militants, who were dressed in cricket uniforms, were also killed.
The militants threw grenades and fired indiscriminately after they stormed into a CRPF camp, reports said.
The CRPF camp is located near a school.
Minister of State for Home Affairs Shri RPN Singh condemned Wednesday's terror attack in Srinagar and described it as an ´act of cowardice´.
In a statement, Singh has expressed deep concern over this unfortunate incident in which five Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were killed.
He has also expressed his ´deep sympathies´ towards the bereaved families of the ´martyred´ CRPF jawans.
