Militanats attack army camp in Tangdhar, two injured

Srinagar,November 25: Militants today attacked an Army camp in Tangdhar sector near the Line of Control (LoC), leaving two persons injured.

The militants attacked from the rear side of the camp at 6.15 AM, which resulted in few vehicles catching fire, defence sources said.

"Two individuals sustained injuries in the attack. Efforts are on to put out the fire," the sources said.

An Army official said that the militants seem to be heavily armed as they used small fire arms and UBGLs to carry out the attack.

"There was a stand off fire from Kalsuri Ridge (in Tangdhar sector) towards an army camp this morning," the official said.

There was a brief lull before the militants opened fire again, triggering off a gunbattle, which was going on till last reports came in.

Tangdhar sector is close to the LoC in Kupwara district and has been used as an infiltration route in the past.

The official said it was not yet clear whether the militants were part of an infiltrating group.

"That is a matter of investigation. We can comment on it only after the operation is over," he added.
