In a terrorist attack on a military camp in Kupwara district of Kashmir, one security personnel was left injured. The terrorists attacked the army camp located in the forest area of Kalaroose in north Kashmir. The attack happened late on Friday night.

As per reports, a group of militants attacked army's 41 RR (Rashtriya Rifle) headquarter camp in kalaroose. The area is close to the line of Line of Control. India Today quoted official sources as saying that the indiscriminate fire continued on the RR headquarters for at least 10 minutes. The jawans then retaliated which resulted in clash.

The inured soldier of 21 J&K Rifles has been admitted to military hospital, Drugmulla. His condition has been reported to be stable.
