Pathankot: One of the terrorists holed up in the Pathankot air base and was engaging the security forces is believed to have been killed.

Top government sources said the neutralised terrorist was one of the two who were hiding in a two-storey building, a
living accommodation for the personnel.

Still there is no clarity on the exact number of terrorists involved in the attack and whether the terrorist eliminated today was the fifth or the sixth terrorist to be neutralised since Saturday when the terror attack began.

Even this morning, Inspector General of National Security Guards (NSG) Maj Gen Dushant Singh told a press conferenc here that, "Till now, we have eliminated four terrorists and operation to eliminate two more terrorists, possibly, is in the final stage of conduct".
