A guard had spotted the terrorists with AK 47 rifles and ammunition bags at daybreak and opened fire, averting a major attack.

Two days ago, heavily armed terrorists in fatigues barged into the Sunjuwan army base camp in Jammu and killed five soldiers and a civilian. At least 10 people, including soldiers, women and children, were injured as the terrorists attacked the residential quarters of junior commissioned officers, spraying bullets and hurling bombs. The body of the sixth soldier, Farooq Ahmad Quraishi - resident of Kupwara in Kashmir - was recovered during the searches.
