Srinagar: Seven soldiers, including two officers, were killed on Tuesday after suicide bombers armed with guns and grenades stormed a military base near Jammu.
Three militants were also killed in the operation that lasted nearly 14-hours after suicide militants dressed in police uniform stormed the 166 field regiment camp at 5.30 am.
Two officers identified as Major Gosavi Kunal Mannadir and Major Akshay Girish Kumar were among the seven soldiers killed in the terror attack.
Five soldiers were also injured in the attack that occurred barely three km away from the headquarters of the Army's 16 corps in Nagrota.
At one stage, the gunmen at the Army base in the garrison town of Nagrota, some 15 km from Jammu, also took 12 soldiers, two women and two children hostage. But the Army said they were safely rescued.
