PATHANKOT: Security agencies are engaged in a gunfight with two terrorists, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said today afternoon, adding the counter offensive at the Indian Air Force (IAF) base in Pathankot is still on.
"At the moment, even still now, the operation is still going on. There are at least two people," Mr Badal told the media. "They (security forces) are engaging two people at the moment."
The statement came amid uncertainty on the number of terrorists killed at the base.
Gunshots and blasts were heard inside the IAF base again today morning and afternoon.
National Security Guards (NSG) officer, Lt Col Niranjan, was martyred in a blast during mopping operations today.
Four of the terrorists who stormed the sprawling IAF base on Pathankot's outskirts were killed on Saturday after they killed three IAF personnel in the pre-dawn suicide attack.
Seven security personnel have lost their lives in the terror attack.
