Nagrota, which is around 20 km from Jammu, is the headquarters of the army’s 16 Corps, a massive military formation that defends the borders and fights terrorists in the greater Jammu region.

The army has cordoned off the area and all schools have been shut down. Traffic has been stopped on the highway, which is very close to the camp.

Earlier in September, 19 soldiers were killed when terrorists from Pakistan attacked an army base in Uri.
