Confirming the deaths, defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia said the commandos were operating with the army for operational experience and training.

The need for a dedicated force was felt when militants attacked two air bases in Jammu and Kashmir in 2001.

He said that they were part of the Lashkar group involved in several attacks on security forces and civilians in the area in recent past.

The Garud commandos were seriously injured in the firing with the terrorists. The terrorists have been identified as Abu Bakr and Nasrullah Mir. Sources said that two militants also made an appearance at the funeral. With stepped-up anti-terror operations, the nefarious designs of terrorists have received a serious blow.

"As the forces were closing in, the militants fired upon them around 5 am, resulting in injuries to many army personnel".
