AN ARMY jawan opened fire on Sunday killing four of his colleagues before turning the gun on himself at an army camp on the outskirt of Jammu city. The jawan took out his gun after a verbal duel between two groups of army men over accommodation at a camp at Miran Sahib and opened fire killing the four on the spot before he committed suicide, Brigade Commander Brig Manjit Singh said.

He said the jawans had come to Miran Sahib from Kargil on Saturday for temporary duty. A court of inquiry has been ordered into the incident, Singh added. The jawan who opened fire was identified as Naik Satendra Singh, while those killed by him were Bhor Singh, Omi Singh, Ananta Kumar and Hans Raj.
