7 Soldiers Killed In a Terror Strike at Nagrota, Hostage-like- crisis

Seven soldiers, including two officers, were killed in a huge terror attack at an army base near Jammu in the town of Nagrota, 20 kilometers from the border with Pakistan. A group of heavily-armed suicide attackers in police uniforms entered the army base before daybreak with guns and grenades and entered buildings where there were army officers’ families, which led to a hostage-like crisis. Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar said: “Statistics have shown the attack is on military installations. Civilians are not being targeted.”
