Rijiju said central security agencies were working in close coordination with Punjab Police in the entire operation to eliminate the terrorists, who attacked an Indian Air Force base.

In a pre-dawn attack, a group of heavily-armed Pakistani terrorists, suspected to be belonging to Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, struck at an Air Force base in Punjab, leading to a fierce gun-battle in which three security personnel were killed.

Four attackers were also killed in the encounter.
