Schools within 500 metres of the camp have been asked to stay closed.
It is believed to be a suicide attack by Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists, the first such attack in Jammu this year, sources said.
Heavy security has been deployed at all entry and exit points. There were intelligence inputs about possible attacks in the state, and security forces were alert, but there was no specific information that they would strike this station in Jammu.
Suicide attackers had targeted the same army station in 2003. Twelve soldiers had lost their lives and seven others were injured.
