A jawan and a civilian were killed on Sunday night when militants attacked an Army camp in Pulwama district of South Kashmir, police said.

This is the first terror strike by militants after the Centre announced cessation of operations during the holy month of Ramzan.

Police said the militants attacked the camp of 50 Rashtriya Rifles at Kakapora in Pulwama district and a soldier was seriously injured.

A civilian identified as Bilal Ahmed was also injured in the crossfire.

Both were rushed to a hospital where the duo succumbed to their injuries.

Authorities have clamped prohibitory orders in parts of Pulwama district.

They said the fire was retaliated by the Army personnel.
