SRINAGAR: Militants stormed an Indian army camp early Saturday in Indian occupied Kashmir, killing at least two army officers and wounding seven people, a senior police official said.

The police officer, who asked not to be named, said three or four militants had launched the attack.

At least two junior commissioned officers were killed, the officer said, and two women and two children - relatives of army personnel – were among seven injured in the fighting.

SD Singh Jamwal, the inspector general of police in Jammu, said that at about 4:55 am, a guard noticed suspicious movement before gunfire on his bunker.

As of noon, fighting was still ongoing, said Jamwal.

The site was cordoned off, and surrounded by police and army units called in as reinforcements.

"The fire was retaliated. The number of militants isn't known," he said. "They've been cornered in one of the family quarters."

Bunny Rabbit | 2 years ago | Reply | Recommend See I told you its just not India or Pakistan we also have militants in between who are causing mayhem between the two .
Rizvi | 2 years ago | Reply | Recommend I strongly condemn use of word "militant" for these people. They are freedom fighters who are fighting for their rights with a henious and satanic India which knows nothing but brutality, oppression and cruelty. These are great people who must be respected and given their due honour.
