Jammu: A high alert was sounded in Jammu on Monday after terrorists killed three labourers of the General Reserve Engineer Force (GREF) near the international border (IB).

Terrorists had attacked a GREF camp around 2 a.m. in Battal area in Akhnoor sector of the IB, a police officer said.

"Three labourers working for GREF were killed in the terror attack," he added.

Reports from the area said the terrorists, whose exact number was not known, managed to escape after the attack.
