Amid confusion prevailing over the details of Sunday night’s terror attack at Army-BSF camp in Baramulla, Union minister Hansraj Ahir on Monday said it would be improper to say that no terrorist was killed in retaliation by the security forces.
The Home Ministry had claimed that two terrorists had been shot dead but this was corroborated neither by the army, BSF or the local police.
“It has also come to light that some militants have also been killed, but this is being verified. However, it would be improper to say that no terrorists were killed in retaliation. Search is on. There is a possibility that terrorists may have fled taking their accomplice along with them,” the Minister of State for Home Affairs said.
Confusion prevailed over the terror attack at Army-BSF camp in Baramulla on Sunday night which was described by senior para-military officials today as a ‘shoot and scoot’ strike by terrorists in which one BSF personnel was killed.
The Minister said that the attack on BSF camp shows that Pakistan and terrorists have been “rattled” after surgical strike on terror camps across the Line of Control (LoC) post Uri incident.
He also termed the ceasefire violations as “unfortunate” when National Security Advisors (NSAs) of two countries were engaged in talks to reduce tension along the LOC.
