Jammu: A terrorist was on Monday killed after a CRPF camp came under attack on Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Kud area of Udhampur district, police said.

The camp, located about 170 kms from here, came under attack from militants, believed to be more than one in number, who were travelling in a State Road Transport Corporation bus which was stopped for checking by a joint party of CRPF and J&K police.
