The probe, which has been ordered into Thursday's terror attack and a team will go into the entire incident and find out if any lapses were there on part of the unit, sources said in New Delhi.
The probe will also look into the fact that whether all the standard operating procedures were observed by the officers and personnel of the 16 Cavalry unit.
The sources said that terrorists had entered the unit from a gate which was close to the officers' mess, and shot down the only sentry Kiran Kumar, who hailed from Thiruvananthpuram, in indiscriminate firing.
Such an attack on army units have happened in the Jammu region after a long time and questions are being raised whether the armoured unit deployed there had taken enough precautions to deal with such an incident.
Both Commanding Officer Colonel Avin Uthaiya and his deputy Lt Colonel Bikramjeet Singh were hit in the militant attack. Uthaiya’s condition is stable after being treated in the Pathankot Military Hospital while the latter succumbed to his injuries after being hit in the stomach.
