Attackers have opened fire at a paramilitary camp in Indian-administered Kashmir, according to an army spokesperson.

Sunday's incident comes just days after forces from India and Pakistan were involved in exchange of fire across the de facto border dividing the Kashmir valley.

"Terrorists opened fire on an army camp in Baramulla town," Colonel Rajesh Kalia told AFP news agency on Sunday.

"An exchange of fire between soldiers and attackers is still on."

According to reports, it was the 46 Rashtriya Rifles army camp in Kashmir’s Baramulla district that came under attack on Sunday evening.

The camp is located around 54km from Srinagar, capital of Indian-administered Kashmir.

Reports said two soldiers were injured in the attack.

Imtiyaz Hussein, Baramulla superintendent of police, said heavy shooting had erupted near the camp.

Tensions between the neighbouring countries have been on the rise following the Uri attack on the Indian side of the Kashmir border last month in which 17 soldiers were killed.

India then claimed to have carried out "surgical strikes" across the border which the Pakistan army dismissed as an "illusion".
