On December 25, 1996 an Indian soldier named C. B. Rai killed at least five people and wounded seven others at an army camp in Sopore, India. Rai, a member of the Rashtriya Rifles, opened fire on his colleagues with a gun, killing a major, a junior commissioned officer, and three or four jawans, before he was subdued. The reason for the shooting was apparently homesickness, or a domestic problem.[1][2][3][4][5]
