Hyderabad: The attack in Pulwama district which killed 40 CRPF personnel, was not the handiwork of a single man but a group, former Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) chief Vikram Sood said on Sunday.
He also attributed the incident to security lapses somewhere.
“The entire episode of Pulwama was not a job done by one man. There would have been a whole team behind him,” he told reporters after addressing a seminar on ‘External Intelligence for National Security’ here.
“This kind of an incident does not take place without a security lapse somewhere. They had knowledge about the movement of the (CRPF) vehicles. There must have been group of people who did it,” Sood said.
Asked about India’s possible response, Sood said, “It is not a boxing match.. punch for punch won’t do.”
The timing and place would be chosen by the security forces, as the Prime Minister had said, he added.
