At one stage, the gunmen also took 12 soldiers, two women and two children hostage. But the army said they were safely rescued.
Meanwhile, many political parties’ leaders have condemned the terror attack.

This is the second major attack on an army camp in past 3 months. Earlier in September, 17 soldiers were killed in a deadly attack on a army camp in Uri.
