Attack on army camp in Jammu and Kashmir; four soldiers killed

kk

SRINAGAR: Four Indian Army personnel on Thursday succumbed to injuries received while neutralising two terrorists who attempted to carry out a suicide bomb attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri. Subedar Rajendra Prasad, Riflemen Manoj Kumar, Lakshmanan D and Nishanth Malik made the supreme sacrifice for the country during the operation on Thursday morning. One soldier sustained injuries.

However, the Army managed to foil a suicide bomb attack on its base here and killed both the terrorists. The martyred persons were shifted to medical facilities for further treatment, Army officials said here.

"In a terrorist attack 25 km from Rajouri, two terrorists carried out a suicide bomb attack on an Army company operating base. Both terrorists have been killed while three own troops have lost their lives. Operations in progress," Indian Army officials said.

16 Corps Commander Lt Gen Manjinder Singh is constantly monitoring the situation on the ground. The area is being sanitised, they added. The suicide bomb attack on the company operating base of a Rashtriya Rifles unit in Pargal located in the Darhal area of Rajouri looks like an attempt to carry out a Uri-like attack where terrorists had infiltrated the Army camp and killed 19 soldiers.

The attempt to infiltrate the Army camp took place days ahead of the 75th Independence Day celebration in the country.
