Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Tuesday led the wreath-laying ceremony organised to pay tributes to four of the six soldiers who were killed in a militant attack on the Sunjuwan Military camp Jammu.
Mehbooba joined the cabinet colleagues and senior Army and police officials and laid floral wreaths on the bodies of four Army personnel, hailing from Kashmir, at the Jammu airport, an official spokesperson said.
A group of militants struck the residential quarter inside the Army camp at Sunjuwan Jammu on Saturday, killing seven people — six soldiers, including two junior commissioned officers (JCOs) and father of one of the slain soldiers — and injuring 10 others.
Three heavily-armed militants were killed in the gunfight.
