Terror attack on CRPF camp foiled, combing operation underway

SRINAGAR: Two heavily-armed terrorists were seen approaching towards a CRPF camp on Monday in Jammu and Kashmir's Srinagar. The soldiers stationed at the post opened fire following which the terrorists fled from the spot.

The terrorists were carrying bags and AK 47 guns. A search operation around the camp has been initiated.

It is believed that the terrorists were planning to attack the CRPF camp.

Meanwhile, combing operations have been launched at terror-hit  Sunjwan ArmyCamp in Jammu.

At least five soldiers and one civilian got killed while several others got injured in a gunbattle that went on for over 30 hours in Sunjwan Army camp. The forces also gunned down four terrorists after an intense encounter that went on for more than a day.

Authorities said that the gunbattle went on for so long as the Army wanted to avoid any collateral damage.

On Saturday, two JCOs got killed as the terrorists carried out an early morning attack at the Army camp. In retaliation, the forces killed three terrorists on Saturday while another was killed on Sunday.

The terrorists carried out the attack by opening indiscriminate fire and lobbed grenades inside the Army camp. Later, they entered the JCO family quarters where they opened indiscriminate fire.

After killing three terrorists on Saturday, the forces recovered AK-47 rifles and other weapons from the terrorists.

Reports quoting intelligence sources said that Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin and JeM chief Masood Azhar are the masterminds of the attack on the Army camp.

Reports cited intercepts from Pakistan and said that a meeting between the chiefs of the terror groups was held recently in Muzaffarabad in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. The two groups also reportedly organised a terrorist camp in Muzaffarabad.

The terrorists who attacked the Army camp were reportedly trained at this training camp and then sent to the Indian side of the border.
