Indian army Baramulla camp targeted, BSF guard killed
Baramulla: A guard of Indian Border Security Force (BSF) was killed and another wounded as a result of unknown militants’ attack on an Indian army camp in the held Kashmir.
The militants attacked the Indian army camp with grenades and gunfire, the local media reported.
The attack was carried out on the local headquarter of anti-insurgency military unit in the garrison town of Baramulla, which lies 50km north-west of Srinagar, the main city in Kashmir.
The identity of the group which carried out the attack has not been revealed so far by the Indian army.
It is pertinent to mention here that the said attack came after three days the Indian army claimed it had carried out a ‘surgical strike’ in the territory of Pakistan.
Moreover, during last month, some unknown militants attacked the Indian army base in the town of Uri, claiming the lives of 18 soldiers and wounding many others.
The ties between Pakistan and India have worsened after the Uri attack and, secondly, after Pakistan PM’s UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) address in which he spoke against the brutality of Indian armed forces in Kashmir valley.
Indian establishment is continuously accusing Pakistan of arming and training militants for Kashmir’s independence from Indian military control while Pakistan denies all of these blames.
Meanwhile, two days ago, Pakistan’s DG ISPR (Director General Inter Services Public Relations) Asim Saleem Bajwa clearly stated in front of media that Indian claims of ‘surgical strike’ in territory of Pakistan were absolutely baseless.
