Srinagar, Dec 6: A day after the poll bound Jammu and Kashmir witnessed one of the worst days of terror in a string of brazen militant strikes, Army has recovered a huge cache of arms and ammunition from the six slain terrorists in the counter operation. [21 killed in 4 terror strikes in J&K]
Not only this, the Army has also recovered food packets having wrappers printed in Urdu and the arms have Pak markings from the terrorists. This once again shows that terrorism on Indian soil is being perpetrated by Pakistani Army.
"The food packets, which were recovered from the encounter site, are generally used by Pakistan Army," a senior army officer here said.
The officer said the recovery of food packets along with the arms and ammunition showed that the militants were planning to engage the security forces for a long time.
21 people, including 11 security personnel, were killed and at least 11 injured Friday in a string of brazen militant strikes, days ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally here for the staggered assembly election.
Heavily armed militants attacked an army camp and a police checkpost, besides hurling a grenade at a posse of security personnel at three places. A smoke grenade also went off at a fourth place. The encounter between the Army and the group of militants lasted just over six hours. All the six militants were also killed.
Army Chief Dalbir Singh Suhag is set to visit Srinagar on Saturday in the wake of the four terror strikes. He will review the security situation in the state and also pay tribute to the jawans martyred in the attack.
