Nagrota terrorist attack; 7 attacks in 7 days in Jammu and Kashmir


Indian ArmyTwo terrorist activities have been recorded on Tuesday morning in Jammu and Kashmir. As in every fight our Indian soldiers have to pay for it by sacrificing their lives. In these incidents also some of our solders lost their lives and some got injures. But at the end situation has been under control.

The gun fight broke out in Nagrota Cantonment on Tuesday morning between 5:30-6:00 AM. The battle broke out when militants attacked on army camp in Nagrota in Jammu and Kashmir near the headquarters of armyโ€™s 16 corps. The battle continues for more than 12 hours. Seven soldiers were martyred and around three militants were killed in the fight.

It is to be believed there were near about 2-3 suicide attackers sheltered in the area of firing. The headquarters of Nagrota is a military formation, which is the nucleus or the main centre to protect the border of Jammu and Kashmir, which is adjacent to Pakistan and fight terrorists. Following the attack, the schools in the cantonment located close to National Highway 1A were shut down for the day.

This is the seventh terrorist attack in the last seven days. India is blaming Pakistan for the attack as series of fire have been occurred among the Indians and Pakistan soldiers after surgical strike, where number of terrorists killed during the operation. Since then, terrorists have attacked various times in Jammu and Kashmir.

The militants entered in the camp were dressed as army men with carrying automatic weapons and explosives. They intrude into officerโ€™s mess and create uneasiness among the officers. Twelve army men, two ladies and two children were successfully rescued. The children rescued were of 18 and 2 months old.

In another incident, three terrorist were encountered by Border Security Force in chamliyal area close to the International Border. As told by the sources, some terrorists were trying to cross the International Border and in order to prevent their passage the encounter was done in Ramgarh sector of Samba district. One BSF jawan was also injured during the operation. Militants were hiding in a power house in Satwal area in Chamliyal. The area was roped off Monday night and an assault cast on Tuesday morning.

Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar and Army chief General Dalbir Singh gave abbreviation of both the incidents to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. As after surgical strike the relation between both the governments got worsened. Both the countries are blaming each other at every single attack. Hopefully, PM would find out a solution to put an end on the future attacks on India and ensures the safety to the citizens.
