J&K: 4 killed as terrorists storm Army camp in Jammu

The terrorist have been cornered in one of the family quarters

The CRPF has cordoned off the area, heavy security has been deployed at all entry and exit points, and a high security alert has been issued.

Director General of Police S P Vaid, Inspector General of Police, Jammu S D S Jamwal, senior Army officers and officials of police and civil administration were present there, he said.

The minister did not specify the militant group who launched the attack. Almost a dozen soldiers were killed when militants attacked the camp in 2003. Most of the families have been evacuated from the junior commissioned officers quarters where the terrorists had entered.

IGP S.D. Singh Jamwal said, "Suspicious movement was noticed by the sentry and his bunker was sacked upon".

After hearing the gunshots, other troops at the station retaliated and exchange of fire continued for almost an hour, sources said.

EU negotiator Michel Barnier warns Brexit transition period 'not a given'
One potential solution - staying in a customs union with the EU - has been ruled out by May. However, Barnier said that a deal could not be guaranteed, if Britain remains inflexible.

She spokesman said paid tributes to the slain army personnel, praised their valour and sympathised with the bereaved families of soldiers. Former J&K chief minister Farooq Abdullah said that Pakistan had to stop terrorism and linked most incidents to Pakistan.

"Six persons including three women and children have suffered injuries", the army said, adding, that due to the presence of women and children in the housing colony, "the operations are being progressed cautiously to minimise the causalities".

Police sources earlier said that the attackers split themselves into two groups and one of these was "isolated" in a corner of a four-storey building within the camp. "Before the final assault on the terrorists, we are making sure that no civilians are harmed in this operation", the statement said.

This time too, the security agencies were expecting an attack along the LoC or the International Border but not so close to the Jammu city.

Chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti, expressed anguish over the militant attack and the loss of life caused in it.
