Intelligence inputs had warned an attack on the army or security establishment by Jaish-e-Mohammed in view of the death anniversary of Afsal Guru who was hanged on February 9, 2013. In a tweet, she said, "Deeply disturbed by the terrorist attack in #Sunjwan today. My heart goes out to the injured & their families".

According to reports from Jammu, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Abdul Rehman Veeri informed the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly that Subedar Maganlal and Subedar Mohammed Ashraf were killed in the attack by militants.

Suspecting they could be terrorists, the soldiers challenged them.

Reports said the stand-off continued.

Saturday's attack has once again raised the issue of security of military establishments across the country. For money, some people have given them space to stay.

Perimeter security will be strengthened at Army bases under six commands, the sources said. The number of militants isn't known. Before he could act, the terrorist started firing and the jawans retaliated with force. "Investigations must be done". "The terrorists entered the camp through a nullah on its rear side", he added. "Now the attack has been contained and operation is still in progress".
