The terror strike on consulate general of India at Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan was aimed at avenging the execution of 2001 Indian Parliament attack conspirator Afzal Guru.
The terrorists left a message in blood on the walls of the Indian consulate in Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan just before they were gunned down by soldiers of the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF).
Two messages written in blood have been found on the walls of the Indian consulate in Mazar-e-Sharif.
Afzal guru ka inteqam” was scribbled in drying blood on the tiled walls of the building in Mazar-i-sharif where the three were found dead.
Above, in less legible writing, was purportedly written, “ek shaheed, hazaar fidayeen aur (one martyr, thousand suicide bombers)”.
The ANSF soldiers noticed the words written, apparently with blood, on the walls of the rooms, while searching the half-constructed building adjacent to the Indian consulate after the 25-hour-long operation to neutralise the terrorists ended.
Afghan national security forces killed three terrorists in the safe room of a three-storey building.The terrorists had stormed the building Sunday night after Indian forces detected militants inside the Pathankot airbase.
