Ops against militants to be over successfully: Rajnath


NEW DELHI, Feb 11: Home Minister Rajnath Singh today exuded confidence that the ongoing operation against terrorists, who attacked an Army camp in Jammu, would be concluded successfully soon.
"Operation is still undergoing," he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.
"I think it is not proper for me to comment on when the operation is still on. I'm sure that our jawans, who are in the operation, will successfully conclude it," he said.
A group of heavily armed Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists struck the sprawling camp of the 36 brigade of Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry in the early hours yesterday, triggering a gunbattle.
Two of the attackers in combat gear were gunned down yesterday.
Security forces killed two more terrorists holed up in the Sunjwan Army camp, while the toll in the attack rose to six with the death of three more Army men and a civilian, a senior police official said today.
Meanwhile, Governor N N Vohra today met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and briefed him about the prevailing situation in the troubled state, an official said.
The nearly half-an-hour meeting took place amidst the fierce fighting between militants and security forces at a military station near Jammu in which six people were killed and 11 others were injured.
The governor apprised the home minister of the security situation in the state, particularly in border areas, which have been witnessing massive ceasefire violation by Pakistan and infiltration from across the border, a home ministry official said.
The militant attack on an army installation in Jammu figured in the meeting, the official said.
Vohra and Singh also discussed the ongoing peace initiative undertaken by Centre's representative Dineshwar Sharma and his meeting with a cross section of people, he said.
Yesterday, in a pre-dawn attack, terrorist struck the sprawling camp of the 36 Brigade of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JKLI) at Sunjuwan.
Five Army men, including two junior commissioned officers (JCOs), and the father of a soldier have been killed in the attack, an Army spokesperson said.
Three suspected Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists have also been eliminated, the spokesperson said.
