The area of the army camp is now cordoned off by the authorities.

Mr. Vaid said the attack coincides with the death anniversary of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

Indian media reported three or four militants entered the heavily fortified Sunjwan Army camp in Jammu area of the disputed region at 5 a.m. local time (2330GMT Friday).

While the minister did not specify the group affiliation of the militants who carried out the attack, officials said Jaish-e-Mohammed militants were behind the terror strike.

"It's nearly impossible to breach the security at the front gate".

The militants barged into the army brigade headquarters at Sunjuwan from the rear side at around 4.45 am today, said IGP Jammu.

Para Commandos of the Indian Air Force (IAF) were airlifted to Jammu from Udhampur for the operation and another aircraft is also airborne to airlift para commandos from Sarsawa. At two JCOs have been killed and seven others injured, including the daughter of one Army personnel.

"We have received information that the operation is going on". Almost a dozen soldiers were killed when militant attacked the camp in 2003.

The officer said that the search of their belongings confirmed that the terrorists were from Jaish-e-Mohammed. Soon after the attack took place the Indian Army jawans retaliated with heavy gunfire.
