"Two cases of suspected swine flu have been reported in Jammu," Superintendent of  Government Medical College Ramesh Gupta said.

He said the students have been kept separately.

The students, one studying in Bangalore and the other in Pune, had come home for the summer break. One was staying at Kathua, about 80 km south west of Jammu, and the other at Nanak Nagar locality of this city.

Jammu and Kashmir is a tourist state and most tourists to the Kashmir Valley and  pilgrims to Vaishno Devi shrine pass through Jammu city.

"We have set up centres to screen for swine flu at airports and railway stations," a senior health official said.
