Army kills two heavily armed JeM terrorists; two soldiers martyred — Sunjwan attack

Jammu on red alert after JeM terrorists attack army camp injuring 2

Sources said two of the three terrorists involved in the attack were subsequently eliminated by the troops inside the army camp at Sunjwan in Jammu. "The MHA is closely monitoring the situation", the Ministry of Home Affairs said in a tweet.

Schools in the entire area around the camp have been closed. The camp falls under the first Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry in 36 brigade.

Police chief S.P. Vaid told AFP that one of the injured was the daughter of an army officer.

In the initial attack, Subedar Madan Lal Chowdhry, his daughter Neha, and Lance Naik Bhadur Singh were injured. The Army cordoned off the area and called for the reinforcements. The attack could have been worse given the fact that the residential area has a school inside as well. The 2001 Parliament attack convict was hanged inside Tihar Jail and buried there on 9 February, 2013.

December 31, 2017-January 1, 2018: Five CRPF personnel were killed and three others were injured in a 24-hour long encounter between the Border Security Forces (BSF) and suspected JeM militants in South Kashmir's Lethapora.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti took to Twitter and expressed condolence over the attack.

All educational institutions within half a kilometre radius of the camp were shut down for the day. At least 12 soldiers were killed in the militant attacks. He said that the involvement of Rohingyas could not be ruled out in Sunjwan terror attack because these foreign immigrants had been declared as "ticking time bombs" by the intelligence agencies.

Fourteen soldiers have been killed in the last 31 days, he said.

According to ANI, Gunshots were heard inside the Sunjwan Army camp on Saturday morning. The number of militants isn't known.

The terrorists entered the Sunjuwan Military Station at around 4.45 am on Saturday hurling grenades and using heavy volume of automatic gunfire to attack the Army camp.

The Sunjuwan military station had been attacked once earlier on June 28, 2003 when two Lashkar-e-Toiba suicide attackers stormed the camp killing 12 soldiers and injuring seven others.

Following the attack, a high alert was sounded in Jammu and security was beefed up in and around the city.
