A group of four-to-five heavily armed militants, who stormed an army camp here early Saturday and later entered the JCO quarters have been surrounded as security forces started room-to-room intervention.
There were intelligence inputs that Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) militants were planning to carry out an attack around the 5th death anniversary of Parliament attack convict, Afzal Guru, who was hanged on February 9, 2013 in Tihar Jail, informed sources in the police said.
All educational institutions within half a kilometre radius of the camp have been shut down for the day.
In 2006, a suicide attack carried out at the same camp saw the death of 12 soldiers before two fidayeen militants were killed.
