Kashmir’s top cop suspects Lashkar hand in Gurdaspur attack

Gurdaspur: A senior Jammu and Kashmir police officer said today that the arms and ammunitions used in the attack on Dina Nagar police station and the bus indicates that the militants involved in the attack may have links with Pakistan-based Laskar-e-Taiba (LeT).

Deputy Inspector General of Police Samba-Kathua range, Ashkoor Ahmed Wani today said that the attack that was carried on Dina Nagar was similar to the one that was carried out on the police station and Army camp in Samba sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

The militants have chosen the same time as they attacked the police station in Jammu and Kashmir early in the morning which indicates these militants may have links with the Laskar-e-Taiba, Wani told reporters after taking the stock to situation of encounter site.

The actual picture would be cleared following the report of GPS system, he added.

Wani said that the chances of infiltration by militants may increase in the rainy season as inflow of rivers and their tributaries increase many folds and damages the fencing wire on the Indo-Pak international border, “but security force and police would not allow them to succeed in their mission.”

He stressed on the need to better coordination between the police of Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir in an order to maintain law and order situation in two border states.

He also inspected the arms and ammunitions recovered from the killed militants. (PTI)
