Militants attacked an Army camp in Tangdhar sector near the Line of Control (LoC) using small arms and under barrel grenade launchers on Wednesday. No casualties have been reported so far.

“There was a stand off fire from Kalsuri Ridge (in Tangdhar sector) towards an army camp this morning,” an army official said. He said there was a brief lull before the militants opened fire again, triggering off a gunbattle, which was going on till last news reports came in.

The official said the militants seem to be heavily armed as they used small fire arms and UBGLs to carry out the attack. “So far there are no casualties reported,” he added.


Tangdhar sector is close to the LoC in Kupwara district and has been used as an infiltration route in the past. The official said it was not yet clear whether the militants were part of infiltrating group. “That is a matter of investigation. We can comment on it only after the operation is over,” he added.
