2 paratrooper, soldier, 2 CRPF men among 6 killed, forces storm EDI building

Two Army paratrooper, a Lance Naik (LN) and two Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were among six people killed in the on going operation at Pampore in south Kashmir, where a group of militants are holed up in a government building. Meanwhile, troops stormed into Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI) building at Sempora Pampore where the militants are holed up though their number was not clear as some say three while others put the number at five. Troops have cleared ground and first floor, official source said adding when they were moving towards second floor, militants hiding there again opened fire and also hurled grenades. Another Captain was critically wounded who was shifted to base hospital where he died. Since it is a very big and concrete building, it will take time to reach to militants holed up there, they said.
