Attackers opened fire at a paramilitary camp in Indian-administered Kashmir, according to an army spokesperson, killing one border guard and wounding another.
According to reports, it was the 46 Rashtriya Rifles army camp in Kashmir’s Baramulla district that came under attack on Sunday evening.
Sunday’s incident comes just days after forces from India and Pakistan were involved in exchange of fire across the de facto border dividing the Kashmir valley.
“Terrorists opened fire on an army camp in Baramulla town,” Colonel Rajesh Kalia told AFP news agency on Sunday.
“An exchange of fire between soldiers and attackers is still on.”
An official confirmed that one soldier was killed in the attack.
“One BSF personnel was killed and one injured when militants tried to enter an army camp,” said local Superintendent of Police Imtiyaz Hussein.
The camp is located around 54km from Srinagar, capital of Indian-administered Kashmir.
