By evening, the militants had been contained in one part of the camp's residential quarters, army spokesman Col. Davinder Anand said, adding that the presence of soldiers' families at the camp meant that the military had to respond very cautiously to the attack. Three terrorists were also gunned down.
On Saturday, the army successfully neutralised one more terrorist in the ongoing operation at Sunjwan Army Camp in Jammu and Kashmir.
Rao had asked the former Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister to remove Akbar Lone from his party instead of backing the MLA's "pro-Pak rants". Since terrorists are holed up inside the family quarters, we are moving very cautiously.
Separately, in July previous year, the government had delegated "substantial" financial powers to the Army, the Navy and the Indian Air Force to strengthen perimeter security at sensitive bases across the country.
The fidayeen entered the camp from its rear side and started firing indiscriminately.
Earlier too Jaish militants had managed to strike at security forces despite advance warnings. Following the attack, the authorities ordered closure of schools in Sunjwan belt of Jammu city.
