In view of a suspected fidayeen attack near Srinagar international airport, the security forces on Tuesday conducted random searches of vehicles and two-wheelers coming into the city from other districts at various places.
Three fidayeen of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and a BSF jawan were killed and two security personnel injured in the encounter.
Security forces and state police personnel have established a naka at Hyderpora on the airport road, less than half-a-kilometer from the encounter site.
They were searching passenger and other vehicles, besides two wheelers, which were coming into the city from Budgam.
Officials said documents and identification cards of the people were being thoroughly checking, before allowing them into Srinagar. (Agencies)
