The sneak attack triggered a massive gun battle that lasted well over two-and-a-half-hours, sending huge columns of black smoke rising into the sky.

This is reportedly the biggest terror attack on any army camp in Jammu and Kashmir in about a decade.




After the fighting died down, soldiers continued to comb the camp for other militants who may be hiding as well as explosives they may have planted, officials said.

No terror group claimed responsibility for the bloodbath, but some reports said the attackers had recently infiltrated into the Indian side of the LoC from Pakistan.




The incident has raised several questions about the security of sensitive army installations in the country.

On January 2, 2016, six terrorists, believed to be from Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed attacked the Pathankot IAF airbase and held security forces in an encounter for four days before being killed.
