Search operations resume in Nagrota

IANS  |  Jammu 

Search operations on Wednesday were resumed inside the Nagrota army camp that was attacked by terrorists on Tuesday killing seven soldiers, including two officers.

"The search operation inside the camp was resumed with the first light of day. The operation was halted due to darkness yesterday (Tuesday) evening," army sources said.

Three militants were also killed in the operation that lasted nearly 14-hours after suicide militants dressed in police uniform stormed the 166 field regiment camp at 5.30 a.m.

Two officers identified as Major Gosavi Kunal Mannadir and Major Akshay Girish Kumar were among the seven soldiers killed in the terror attack.

Others killed included Havaldar Sukhraj Singh, Lance Naik Kadam Sam bhaji Yeshwantro, Grenadier Raghvendra Singh and Rifleman Azim Rai.

Five soldiers were also injured in the attack that occurred barely three km away from the headquarters of the army's 16 corps in Nagrota.

In the other terror attack that occurred at a BSF camp near the international border in Ramgarh sector, five security personnel, including Deputy Inspector General B.S. Kasana and Inspector Sarabjit Singh were injured while three militants who attacked the camp were killed.
