JAMMU, Feb 13: Security forces today launched a massive search operation after army personnel claimed to have foiled a suspected militant attack on their camp in Jammu, three days after a deadly strike by Jaish-e-Mohammad group killed seven people at Sunjuwan military station, an official said.
“An attack on a camp was averted and the terrorist fled away,” Jammu-based Army spokesperson Lt Col Devender Anand said.
A senior police officer said, “Two motorcycle-borne terrorists 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 signalled 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.
Heavily-armed fidayeen of Pakistan-based Jaish-e- Mohammed (JeM) group struck an army camp in Sunjwan area in Jammu on Saturday morning, triggering a gun-battle in which six soldiers and a civilian died.
Three fidayeen were also killed by the security forces.
