Jammu: A group of heavily armed militants early on Saturday attacked an army station here in Jammu and Kashmir.

Sources said once inside the camp, militants split into groups and one group forced their entry into the family quarters after firing from automatic weapons and lobbing grenades.

Army sources said the terrorists have been pinned down and the operation is being carried forward cautiously so that no further security force or civilian casualties occur.

The Army said the terrorists had managed to enter the family quarters in the camp and the attack had been contained. The minister said a daughter of a slain army officer was also wounded. "Militants number is not known as of now", said Jammu Inspector General of Police (IGP) S. D. Singh Jamwal.

In a tweet, Mehbooba said: "Deeply disturbed by the terrorist attack in #Sunjwan today".

Security heightened, checking at entry points intensified in Baramulla district after the Sunjwan Army camp attack.

Rao had asked the former Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister to remove Akbar Lone from his party instead of backing the MLA's "pro-Pak rants".

The two countries have fought three wars - in 1948, 1965 and 1971 - since they were partitioned in 1947, two of which were fought over Kashmir. The Defence Spokesman confirmed that terrorists' belongings clearly indicate that they were Jaish-e-Mohammad cadre.

The sentry post at the army camp had noticed some suspicious movement around 4.55 am. In the ensuing encounter, Subedar Muhammad Ashraf Mir, Colonel Rohit Solanki, who is commanding officer of 6 Mahar, and Havildar Abdul Hamid were injured.

The vast army installation located in the city of Jammu is located closed to several shopping centres and schools.

She also presided a high-level meeting to review the security situation in wake of the terror attack, where Northern Command chief Lt Gen. Devraj Anbu, apprised her of the attack and the operation. "Army personnel are still engaged in an intense gunbattle with the terrorists- who are believed to be holed up near the officers residential quarters".

In December previous year, a similar attack on highly fortified paramilitary camp in the region ended with killing of five Central Reserve Police Force personnel and three militants.

Most of the unarmed soldiers and their family members were rescued by the Army after cornering the attackers.
