J&K: Lashkar claims responsibility of Sunjwan Army Camp, Karan Nagar terror attacks
The Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) on Monday claimed responsibility for Sunjwan Army Camp which killed 5 people and Karan Nagar terror attacks in which one CRPF was killed in Jammu and Kashmir.
Earlier in the day, a CRPF personnel who was seriously injured in gunfight during ongoing encounter at CRPF camp in Srinagar's Karan Nagar succumbed to injuries. A fierce encounter broke out between terrorists and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday morning following a thwarted bid to attack a camp here.
The guard, posted at the headquarters of the CRPF's 23 battalion headquarters, saw two suspected terrorists approaching the camp at around 4.30 am and opened fire. The two, who were armed with AK-47 rifles, fled from the spot.
The militants fled from the spot, the spokesman said, adding searches were launched soon after to track down the ultras.

Incidentally, the CRPF 23 battalion headquarters is located just a few paces away from Srinagar's Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital where last week a Pakistani terrorist - Naveed Jat alias Abu Hunzullah - successfully escaped from police custody.
Earlier on Saturday, terrorists barged in the Sunjwan army camp in Jammu, killing five security personnel and one civilian. Six army personnel and six civilians are injured.
Four terrorists have been gunned down.
