A group of Jaish-e-Mohammed militants attacked the Sunjwan Army camp in Jammu city in the early hours of Saturday, leaving three Army men and daughter of an Army personnel injured, officials said. At least two terrorists stormed the Sunjwan Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir early this morning and fired indiscriminately killing a soldier and injuring others, including civilians. The area has been cordoned off and a joint operation by the Army and police is underway.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh 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 S P 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.
It’s not for the first time that Sunjwan army base of Jammu is under attack. The cantonment is surrounded with Madrasas & Mosques where huge numbers of illegal Rohingyas are settled. When are we gonna move them out of India? Has congress planned this attack? Is this done under the conspiracy of Congress traitors? Now after this attack the first priority should be to kick out those filthy Rohingya Muslims, they are terrorists. They are a curse on humanity, they couldn’t co-exist with the peaceful Buddhists in Myanmar, send them back to Bangladesh.
Just heard about the terror attack in #Sunjwan of Jammu. I pray for the safety of each & every Army men there. Note:- #Rohingya should thrash out of our country and those who supporting them along with- said a tweet.
It is believed to be a fidayeen attack by Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists, the first such attack in Jammu this year, police said. The military station, spread over many acres, lies in the heart of Jammu along the Jammu-Pathankot highway. It has residential quarters as well as schools inside. The terrorists used the rear side to enter the camp. “It’s not clear how many terrorists entered the camp and how did they manage to do that,” a senior police officer said.
There are many residential pockets around the camp and the forces don’t want any collateral damage in the operation. Heavy security has been deployed at all entry and exit points. There were intelligence inputs about possible attacks in the state, and security forces were alert, but there was no specific information that they would strike this station in Jammu. As Jammu is close to the International Border, it becomes easier for terrorists to escape, police said.
“Our priority is to flush out the terrorists as soon as possible,” police said.
