Srinagar: Two terrorists carried out a suicide attack on an Army company operating base near Rajouri.

Both terrorists have been killed while three jawans of army troops also lost their lives. The operation is currently in progress, the news agency reported citing Indian Army officials.

Additional director general of police Mukesh Singh said, “As reported by army, someone tried to cross the fence of Army camp at Pargal near Budh Kanadi in Darhal area of Rajouri district early morning. Sentry on guard duty challenged and an exchange of fire took place. Additional parties have been dispatched for the location which is around 6km from police station Darhal.”

The ADGP said that two terrorists were killed in the exchange of fire and five army personnel got injured.

“A search operation has been launched and further details are awaited,” he said.

“2 terrorists trying to sneak into a post in the dark at Pargal #Rajouri were detected and engaged by alert troops. The terrorists have been neutralised. 5 soldiers also suffered injuries and are being treated,” Army’s 16 Corps wrote on its Twitter account.

“Attackers had tried to enter the camp around 3:30am but the attempt was foiled and an exchange of gun-fire ensued,” they said.

This comes soon after three LeT terrorists were neutralised by the security forces after an hours-long encounter in Budgam. One of the killed terrorists was involved in the killing of Rahul Bhat and Amreen Bhat.
