Monday, February 12, 2018

Sunjuwan (Jammu): A day after the pre-dawn audacious terror strike at the military camp here, the Army yesterday said it has found the bodies of three of its personnel and a civilian, taking the toll to six, and gunned down three suspected Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists.

Five Army men, including two junior commissioned officers (JCOs), and the father of a soldier have been killed in the attack by the terrorists who struck at the sprawling camp of the 36 Brigade of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JKLI) yesterday, an Army spokesperson said.

In a statement, Jammu-based Army PRO Lt Col Devender Anand said three heavily armed terrorists have been killed in the ongoing operation.

While two were gunned down yesterday, the body a third terrorist was found yesterday, he said, adding they were in combat gear.

He said that AK-56 rifles, an under barrel grenade Launcher, ammunition and grenades were from them.

The spokesperson also said, "There has been no firing since last night."

Earlier in the day, Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) S P Vaid had said that four terrorists had been killed.

In Delhi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh exuded confidence that the ongoing operation against terrorists would be successfully concluded soon.

"I think it is not proper for me to comment when the operation is still on. I'm sure that our jawans, who are in the operation, will successfully conclude it," he told reporters.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi condemned the attack and said all Indians across political lines stand united with the Army men and women.

Giving details, Lt Col Anand said, "So far, six fatal causalities have occurred. They include two JCOs, three jawans and one civilian dependent, all residents of Jammu and Kashmir."
