Search operation have been called off hours after militants, last night, attacked the battalion headquarters of 46 Rashtriya Rifles at stadium colony in North Kashmir’s Baramulla. The militants are likely to have escaped taking advantage of night cover.

 

A BSF jawan was killed while another has been injured in the attack. Top army and police officials are presently at the spot assessing the situation. The army and J&K police’s Special Operations Group personnel conducted search operations in the area around the army camp. An injured jawan  is undergoing treatment at the Rashtriya Rifles hospital. He’s said to be out of danger.

“Terrorists tried to enter the camp but our forces retaliated and the terrorists fled, search operations continue,” IG BSF (Kashmir) Vikas Chandra said.

                  India needs a separate army to protect its army from "surgical strikes" on LOC. Please ask USA or France if they can spare some troops to protect jawans.
