Dinanagar (Punjab): After nearly 11 hours, the terrorist attack on Punjab’s Dinanagar town came to an end on Monday evening, police sources said.

The sources said that three terrorists had been killed in the counter-offensive launched by the Punjab Police. Six people, including a senior police officer, two home guards personnel and three civilians, were killed in the attack.

An official said that the area was being secured.

“Combing operations are on now,” said Gurdaspur Deputy Commissioner Abhinav Trikha.

Police officials said that exact details of the number of terrorists killed will emerge only after the combing operation by the Punjab Police and other security agencies ends.

Senior police officers, including Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Sumedh Singh Saini, went inside the besieged police station complex here once the state’s police’s special forces gave the signal that the terrorists had been neutralised.
