Just days after the Baramulla attack in which three security personnel died, militants on Friday released a video of the assault on social media, which police dubbed as an attempt to glamorise militancy.

In the video purportedly shot by one the militants who was part of the attack, he is seen firing at the security forces, reported news agency GNS.

Responding to the video release, a spokesman of Jammu and Kashmir police took to Twitter in which he said that all the militants who were part of the attack were killed within 72 hours.

“By releasing video of attack, militants want to glamourise militancy. But they can’t. We replied by actions & killed 04 top commanders, Sajjad @ Haider & FT Taimur Khan @ Abu Usman (seen in said video/attack) & Naseer @ Sad bhai & FT Ali bhai @ Danish within 72 hours,” said the spokesman, in the tweet.

While three security personnel were killed in the attack, two more army men died during the gunfight that erupted after the former chased the militants.
