Suspected militants attacked a paramilitary camp on the outskirts of Srinagar on Friday night, but there was no loss of life, police said.

The camp that was attacked is located in a power station at Wagoora area of Nowgam in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district. The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel retaliated and there was a brief exchange of fire before the militants fled, the police said.

No loss of life or injury was reported, a police officer said, adding that the area had been cordoned off.

In October, a CISF officer was killed in a sniper attack by militants at the same camp.
