“Heavily armed terrorists dressed in army fatigues attacked the 30 RR camp situated in Langate town of Kupwara district at 5.10 a.m. today (Thursday)
“The alert guards at the 30 RR camp in Langate located close to a civilian facility foiled the terrorists’ attempt to enter the camp by breaching its security periphery,” he said.
“The terrorist firing stopped for some time, but it started again at 6.30 a.m,” he added.
“We have recovered three AK-47 rifles from the slain terrorists. Firing has stopped, but the search operation is still going on,” the army spokesman said.
“No casualty or injury was suffered by the RR troops”.
