NEW DELHI: Indian government has come under heavy pressure and criticism over inability of the Indian Army to complete the operation against the militants attack in occupied Kashmir.

Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh exuded confidence that the ongoing operation against militants, who attacked an Army camp in Jammu, would be concluded successfully soon.

"Operation is still undergoing," he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

"I think it is not proper for me to comment on when the operation is still on. I'm sure that our jawans, who are in the operation, will successfully conclude it," he said.

A group of heavily armed militants struck the sprawling camp of the 36 brigade of Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry in the early hours yesterday, triggering a gunbattle.

Two of the attackers in combat gear were gunned down yesterday.

Security forces killed two more terrorists holed up in the Sunjwan Army camp, while the toll in the attack rose to six with the death of three more Army men and a civilian, a senior police official said today.
