J&K: Army camp attacked, 1 soldier, civilian killed

A civilian and a soldier were killed when terrorists attacked the Army’s 50 Rashtriya Rifles camp at Kakapora in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district late on Sunday evening.

This is the first terror strike by terrorists after the Centre announced the cessation of operations during the holy month of Ramzan. Police said the terrorists attacked the camp of 50 Rashtriya Rifles at Kakapora in Pulwama district leaving a jawan seriously injured.

Apart from the army jawan, police said Bilal Ahmad Gania, a Sumo driver, was critically injured in the crossfire. When the terrorists fired at the camp, soldiers retaliated.

Both were rushed to a hospital where the duo succumbed to their injuries. Authorities have clamped prohibitory orders in parts of Pulwama district.
