The attack comes at a time of heightened tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbours following a deadly assault on an Indian army base in September that New Delhi blamed on Pakistan-based militants. “Three to four militants entered the Army Corps headquarters at Nagrota and fired towards the officers’ mess,” a senior police officer told AFP, referring to a town in northern India roughly 20 kilometres (12 miles) from the border.
