The police however denied that the Quil base could have been the target. "The vehicle on the road was attacked," he added.
The BSF provides external security to the IAF in the Awantipora airbase in Pulwama district. Security forces have cordoned the area and launched search to nab the attackers.
This is the third attack in the Pulwama district in the last week.
While banned militant group Hizbul Mujahideen had claimed responsibility for the last two attacks, police officials however believed the attacks were carried out by the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
