The incident took place at Sui village, five km from Udhampur district headquarters, he said.

Three injured jawans were rushed to the district hospital Udhampur, where two of them, constables B N Murti and Mohammad Tasleem, were declared brought dead, the official said.

He said another jawan, constable Sanjay Thali, was referred to the Government Medical College (GMC) hospital Jammu for specialised treatment after first aid.
