Nagrota Attack: Terrorists Dressed as Policemen Wreaked Havoc
Terrorists mounted a fidayeen style attack early on Tuesday at an Army camp in Nagrota on the outskirts of Jammu.

Terrorists, dressed as policemen, mounted a fidayeen style attack at the Army camp in Nagrota on the outskirts of Jammu at dawn.

Seven soldiers, including two officers, have been killed in the attack. Combing operations are still going on.

The camp is situated close to the headquarters of the Indian Army's 16th Corps - a military formation that acts as a nerve centre to fight militancy and defend the borders in the Jammu region.

"After entering the camp, the militants fired at the Army Officers Mess inside the camp. It's under control now but the firing is still on," said Lt Col Manish Mehta, Public Relations Officer, earlier in the day.

According to initial reports, the terrorists first tried to enter the 166th Army Regiment camp and having failed, they targeted the single officers’ accommodation.

A group of unknown number of militants entered the field regiment camp of the army around 5.30 a.m., said the officer.

The Army said that in the initial counter action, one officer and three soldiers were killed. The terrorists then entered two buildings which were occupied by officers, families and jawans which led to a hostage-like situation.

“The situation was very quickly contained and thereafter, in a deliberate operation all were successfully rescued, which included 12 soldiers, two ladies and two children. However, in this rescue attempt one more officer and two jawans sacrificed their lives. Bodies of three terrorists have been recovered and operations are in progress to sanitise the area,” An Army statement said.

The Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, which runs through Nagrota, was closed as the security forces cordoned off the area.

The district administration closed all schools in Nagrota tehsil as a precautionary measure.

"We have ordered closure of all schools and education institutions in Nagrota tehsil in view of the terror attack," Deputy Commissioner, Jammu, Simrandeep Singh said.
An alert has been sounded in Jammu city.
