Army to look into 'different aspects' of Uri attack

Srinagar/New Delhi, Sep 19:  The Indian Army will look into the Uri attack and probe different aspects of the incident, defence sources said.

Calling it a routine process, officials said it will be an "after action report" and will look into the different aspects of the infiltration that was followed by an attack at the army camp in Uri.

An official stressed it was not an "inquiry" into the attack on Sunday morning that left 18 soldiers dead.

The four terrorists that were killed had medicines and food with Pakistan marking on it.

Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh said on Monday the infiltration attempts by terrorists have shown a marked increase in comparison to the past 3-4 years.

In 2016, there have been 17 infiltration bids eliminated by the Indian Army along the Line of Control. Of a total of 110 terrorists eliminated in the state, 31 have been killed while they were attempting to cross the Line of Control.

The attack has been defined as "shallow infiltration" by army officials, which means the terrorists attacked the first army camp that came their way.

The DGMO also called it "desperate attempt from across the Line of Control to infiltrate more terrorists into Kashmir with a view to create disturbance and foment unrest".
