Terrorists attack army camp in Jammu and Kashmir

The Sunjwan Army camp located in the vicinity of Jammu city was attacked by three Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorists in the wee hours of Saturday.

QRTs or quick reaction teams had cordoned off the area and isolated the terrorists, who are holed up in a few houses within the camp, while the Central Reserve Police Force and state police sealed the perimeter.

In the initial attack, Subedar Madan Lal Chowdhry, his daughter, Neha, and Lance Naik Bahadur Singh were injured.

Jammu's regional police chief S D Singh said the attack kicked off around 4.55am (2325 GMT Friday) when guards came under a hail of bullets near the base's boundary wall.

Sources in the police confirmed the death of two soldiers and said that at least six others have been wounded. "The terrorists were wearing combat uniforms carrying AK-56 assault rifles, large amount of ammunition and hand grenades".

The officer said that the search of their belongings confirmed that the terrorists were from Jaish-e-Mohammed.

A defence spokesperson in Jammu said the terrorists entered the camp after an exchange of fire with a sentry near the family quarters at the rear.

"The army has killed two militants in the ongoing operations inside the camp", an army official told Xinhua. The government has issued an alert in the entire region.

Meanwhile National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has, on Friday, taken cognisance of a complaint filed by three children of Army officers alleging violation of human rights of the force's personnel in recent incidents of stone-pelting in Jammu and Kashmir.

The army had to rush reinforcements of police and paramilitary to take on militants inside the camp. She wrote on Twitter, "Deeply disturbed by the terrorist attack in #Sunjwan today. My heart goes out to the injured and their families".

It is quite possible the attackers who stormed the Sunjuwan army camp on Saturday are the same militants who were untraceable since 2017, but how they managed to reach Jammu despite such strict security is a cause of concern. Ashraf Mir were killed.
