Sunjwan army camp terror attack: Rajnath Singh speaks to Jammu and Kashmir Police chief, takes stock of situation

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday spoke to the chief of the Jammu and Kashmir Police and took stock of the situation arising out of the terror attack on an army camp in Jammu.

During the telephonic conversation, the home minister sought details from Director General of Police SP Vaid on the terrorist attack on the army camp in Jammu, according to a tweet by the Home Minister's Office.

"The DGP has apprised him of the situation. The MHA is closely monitoring the situation," the tweet said.

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.
