Suspected militants attacked a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in India's Kashmir late last night but there was no casualty or damage.

A group of militants fired at a CRPF camp in Tahab area of Pulwama late last night, a police official said today.

He said the CRPF personnel retaliated, forcing the militants to flee.

There was no casualty on either side, the official said.

This is the second such attack on the security forces in the district in the last four days.

Militants had fired a few rounds towards the Pulwama police station on the night of September 7 but there was no damage.

Meanwhile, the Central Reserve Police Force also gave out the extent of the damage it suffered since yesterday.

"14 CRPF personnel injured & 2 CRPF vehicle damaged in 44 incidents of stone-pelting involving the Force in the Kashmir Valley in past 24 hrs," the Force said on twitter.
