Srinagar: In an unfortunate incident, three Army men, including a Captain were martyred in a suicide attack on an Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara district early Thursday.

Two suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists attacked the Panzgam Army camp close to the Line of Control (LoC) around 4.30 am.

In the retaliatory fire from the Army, the terrorists were gunned down.

The deceased officer has been identified as Captain Ayush, but the names of the two soldiers were not immediately known.

The Army launched its combing operation to ascertain whether or not some more fidayeen managed to sneak into the camp.
