Two army men, who were wounded in an Improvised Explosive Device(IED) attack in this south Kashmir district on Monday, succumbed to their injuries on Tuesday morning.

A police official said that havildar  Amarjeet Kumar and Naik Ajit Kumar Sahoo died
at an Army hospital in Srinagar.

On Monday evening, militants had set off an IED planted in a

suffered extensive damage in the attack.

Army’s Srinagar based spokesperson Colonel Rajesh Kalia in a
statement said, “Two soldiers,  brought
to the hospital with severe contusions/concussions, have succumbed to their
injuries while undergoing treatment in 92 Base Hospital. We deeply mourn the
demise of our brave hearts”.
