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.

                                  It is correct the common people do not want war. War is not a solution. If we will see the history everywhere people felt after the war that it was wrong. Even though the war to the situation then was more suitable. War was confined to the war field only. Fate of a human being was heavily depending upon on the ruler. Foreign ruler was a little bit cruel to the citizen/country in comparison to native ruler. scenario is changed now. Change of country and ruler do not effect in enjoying the life at all now. Aim of life is to enjoy with the company of others. It is because of that wrong concept of glorifying this wild act of killing the life has been coming to us from the beginning. The same wild act we are glorifying by using the word martyr and condemning by using the word terrorist just because of a different location. We are not thinking our selves as human being. We are dividing ourselves with region and country based and inviting these wild act as per our convenient. We are really fool in many respect. We are fool to understand God as we are fighting among in his name. We are fool to recognise the development our science has given us, instead of staying in a global village we prefer the old territory and fighting. We are fool to identify the correct person for glorification. We are fool for not knowing the art of leaving in peace and enjoy this precious life. Only God can save us. Praise the God
