"We have heard three blasts initially and a gun battle is on," said the officer, who asked not to be identified because he is not authorised to speak on the record.
The attackers cut a perimeter fence and penetrated the Indian army's battalion headquarters in Tangdhar in northern Kashmir, the officer told Reuters.
