New Delhi: The offensive operation which was carried out three days ago outside the Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI) building at Sempora in Pampore came to an end with the neutralization of two terrorists who were holed up inside the complex.
The security forces had also considered destroying the EDI building to eliminate the terrorists who were holed up inside.
The 70-room, seven-storey building is located at Pampore on the banks of the river Jhelum and 12 km from the Srinagar city centre.
The joint operation was launched by the army, the Special Operations Group of the state police and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).
The main building of the institute was attacked in February when militants captured it and launched a major attack on security forces. Six persons – a civilian, three soldiers and two paramilitary troopers were killed then before the three militants were shot dead.
