The injured include some women and children. The authorities already closed all schools and restricted movement of people within 500 meters from the camp. Almost a dozen soldiers were killed when militant attacked the camp in 2003.

The terrorists, who attacked the Army camp in Sunjwan, located on the outskirts of Jammu city, were believed to be from the "Afzal Guru squad" of JeM. But they apparently "forgot to do it" in Jammu, according to a Deccan Chronicle report. Both the slain soldiers belonged to Jammu and Kashmir.

The attack incidentally occurred after the death anniversary of Afzal Guru, who died in Tihar jail. At least, two persons were injured in security forces' pellet firing on protesters.

In Saturday's attack, the terrorists struck before dawn and managed to sneak into the camp from the rear side of the base after a brief exchange of fire with the sentry on its periphery.

An official said it was premature to say whether the terrorists infiltrated from the Line of Control (LoC) or International Border (IB).

Later, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function in Ahmedabad, Mr. Singh said, "You should be rest assured that Army and security forces are giving a befitting reply to the attack".
