Jammu: Two of the six terrorists who attacked the Indian Army camp at Baramulla in north Kashmir on Sunday evening have been identified.
Sources in the Special Operations Group told India Today that the two men who carried out the attack at 46 Rashtriya Rifles camp were Haneef alias Hilal, 23, and Ali, 22.
Both the men are Pakistani nationals and belong to Masood Azhar’s Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). Border Security Force (BSF) Constable Nitin Kumar was killed and Constable Parminder injured in the attack.
The massive search operation to hunt down militants who escaped after a failed attempt to attack the army camp was called off this morning.
The attack on the 46 RR camp came in the wake of the Indian Army’s surgical strikes on September 29 across the Line of Control in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir, in which almost 50 terrorists were killed.
The strikes were conducted to avenge the killing of 19 soldiers by four JeM terrorists in the garrison town of Uri in Baramulla district on September 18.
