Militant attack on camp in Jammu foiled: Army

Government forces today launched a massive search operation after Army claimed to have foiled a suspected militant attack on their camp in Jammu.

“An attack (on a camp) was averted and the terrorist fled away,” Jammu-based Army spokesperson Lt Col Devender Anand was quoted as saying by PTI.

A senior police officer said two motorcycle-borne militants are believed to have approached the main gate of the camp at Domana on Jammu-Akhnoor road around 0430 hours and fired on the sentry post after security officials signaled them to stop, prompting retaliation.

“An investigation has started and a search operation is underway to track down the fleeing terrorists,” the official said adding that an alert has been sounded in the area.
