Guns fell silent this morning at the Pathankot air base even as the operation against terrorists entered its fourth day with security personnel engaged in search and combing operations to sanitise the installation.
Defence sources said that the firing at the Air Force base in Punjab ceased this morning after the attack that began in the wee hours on Saturday.
However, search and combing operations are on to ensure that the defence installation is properly secured and sanitised, they added.
Security forces had yesterday killed two more Pakistani terrorists inside the Pathankot air base with the government saying that six attackers had thus been neutralised. However, it was not clear whether all the intruders who attacked the base have been eliminated.
