New Delhi: A lesser-known militant outfit `Al Shohada Brigade`, believed to be a shadow outfit of Lashker-e -Toiba terror outfit on Friday claimed responsibility for the twin attacks in Jammu region which left three people, including an army man, dead.
A `spokesperson` of the outfit called some news organisations in Srinagar and claimed the responsibility for the attack.
The outfit`s name was first circulated on September 26 last year when it claimed the responsibility for twin attacks on police station in Hira Nagar and an army camp in Sambha of Jammu region in which 12 people, including Lt Col Bikramjeet Singh, were killed.

However, after the militants were killed, it was clearly established by the police that the suicide attackers belonged to banned Lashker-e-Toiba terror group.
