In light of the latest incident, Onmanorama takes a look at the major attacks on army camps in the past few years.
The incident, which comes after Sunday's killing of a Kashmiri Pandit, took place around 1:15 am.
Sanjay Sharma (40), who worked as an ATM guard, was shot in the chest at point-blank range in the Achan area of the south Kashmir district around 11 am, they added.
The firefight between terrorists and security forces took place after a joint team of the police and the army cordoned off the area and launched a search operation.
The militants were killed in two separate gunbattles with security forces in Kulgam and Pulwama districts.
Forty CRPF personnel were killed in the Pulwama attack on February 14 last year that triggered massive escalation in tension between India and Pakistan.
Security forces including the local police, Rashtriya Rifles and the central reserve police carried out the operations after receiving specific information about the presence of terrorists.
The explosive laden car was said to be placed at a strategic location to target a security forces convoy or a defence installation.
Security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Sharshali village of Pulwama following information about the presence of militants there.
The search operation turned into an encounter after the militants fired upon the forces, who retaliated.
