A group of Jaish-e-Mohammed militants attacked the Sunjwan Army camp in Jammu city in the early hours today, leaving three army men and daughter of an army personnel injured, officials said.
As Firstpost reported earlier, one army jawan succumbed to the injuries after Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists attacked the Sunjwan Army camp on the outskirts of Jammu city. Four people have been grievously injured so far.
However, some news reports claimed that the death toll from the attack could be higher.
Quoting army officials, PTI said that the terrorists breached the rear side of the Sunjwan army camp near Chenni in the outskirts of the city during the intervening night.
Intelligence inputs had warned an attack on the army or security establishment by Jaish-e-Mohammed in view of the death anniversary of Afzal Guru who was hanged on 9 February 2013.
