At least four terrorists launched an attack on the Indian Air Force base in Punjab’s Pathankot on Saturday morning, authorities said. Two of the terrorists have been killed.
The gunfire started at around 3:30 am, authorities said, adding that an official car was used to launch the attack. The incident is being seen as connected to the hijacking of a police car a day ago.
Gunfire is being heard from inside the air base and reports suggest the terrorists have been contained in a non-operational area of the facility.
The technical area where MiG 29 fighter aircraft and helicopters are kept is safe, officials said.
