SRINAGAR: Less than a week after the Indian army had destroys ‘launch pads of pak terrorists’ in the POK, six terrorists attacked an Indian army camp in northern part of the Kashmir on Sunday night, killing one jawan and injuring another.
The brazen assault came two weeks after a similar attack killed 19 Indian soldiers and ratcheted up tensions between India and Pakistan. The latest attack on the camp of India’s 46 Rastriya Rifles in Baramulla, which also houses a unit of the Border Security Force (BSF), started at around 10:30pm and repeated exchanges of fire ensued.
“One BSF personnel was killed and one injured when militants tried to enter an army camp,” said local Superintendent of Police Imtiyaz Hussein. Local reports that two attackers had been killed could not immediately be confirmed.
Hussein said the attackers were not successful in breaching the perimeter of the camp, located inside the town, some 50 kilometres from Srinagar.
