Tributes were paid to the five Army men who lost their lives in a terror attack on Sunjuwan Military camp here.
A group of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists struck the residential quarter inside the Army camp at Sunjuwan here on Saturday, killing seven people -- six soldiers, including two junior commissioned officers (JCOs) and father of one of the slain soldiers -- and injuring 10 others.
Three heavily-armed JeM terrorists were killed in the retaliatory action by the Army.
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today morning led the wreath-laying ceremony organised to pay tributes to four of the six soldiers who were killed in the attack.
Later in the day, Army bid adieu to another soldier whose body was recovered yesterday late night from the encounter site.
JCO Madan Lal Choudhary (50) of Kathua was cremated with full military honours at his village yesterday, while the body of Havaldar Rakesh Chandra of Pauri Garhwal district in Uttarakhand was recovered from the scene of the gunfight last night.
A wreath laying ceremony was held separately for Havaldar Chandra at the technical airport. Senior Army officers led by Lt. Gen Mohan and General Officer Commanding of Tiger Division Maj Gen Sanjay Singh paid rich tributes to the slain soldier.
Bodies of all the five soldiers were flown to their home towns after the wreath-laying ceremonies, the spokesman said.
