Pakistan Army Target fire on Indian Soldier
Suspected militants fired on a military camp in Indian-held Kashmir late Sunday killing one trooper, two weeks after a similar deadly attack that spiked tensions between arch rivals India and Pakistan.
One paramilitary officer was also injured during the firing by an unknown number of militants in Baramulla town, northwest of Srinagar.
“One BSF man has been killed and another injured,” senior police superintendent of Baramulla, Imtiyaz Hussain Mir, told AFP, referring to the Border Security Force (BSF).
Mir said the gunmen were not successful in breaching the perimeter of the camp, located inside the town. The Indian army said on Twitter the “incident” had been brought under control and firing had stopped, without saying whether any suspected militants had been killed or captured.
