Srinagar: An army captain and two soldiers were today killed when militants carried out a Fidayeen attack on an army camp in Kupwara in north Kashmir.

The army officer killed was identified as Captain Ayush, official sources said.

The incident took place at Panjgaon at Chowkibal when militants, suspected to be of terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad stormed the battalion camp which is in-charge of road opening duties on the crucial roads in this area.
