GN Bureau | July 30, 2015
Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today that the terrorists who attacked Dinanagar in Gurdaspur in Punjab came from Pakistan. They came to India via Ravi river. Analysis of the two GPS machines recovered from the three slain terrorists showed that the details of the routes and targets had been fed into these on July 21.
The terrorists attack took place on Monday and they had crossed over from Pakistan on July 26-27 night. The probe has found images showing three heavily-armed men in army fatigues walking on a road.
Singh congratulated Punjab police and said that any terror activity from across the border will be defeated. Making a statement amid uproar and slogan-shouting, Rajnath Singh said, "government is committed to give a befitting reply to those who try to undermine India's security."
Meanwhile, both houses of parliament observed two minutes of silence in memory of the Gurdaspur martyrs on Thursday. As the Lok Sabha assembled for the day’s proceedings, speaker Sumitra Mahajan made obituary references to the martyrs of the terrorist attack at Dinanagar town. The house was adjourned for the day as the last rites of former president APJ Abdul Kalam were held in Rameswaram town of Tamil Nadu.
The Rajya Sabha condemned the terrorist attack and expressed condolences to families of those who died. “Seven persons, including four security personnel, were killed and 16, including six security personnel, were injured in the terrorist attack,” chairman Hamid Ansari said as the house met.
“This house strongly condemns the terrorist attack and reiterates its firm resolve to confront such acts with determination and firmness,” he said.
