Uri attack: India stuns Pak with proof, issues second demarche


New Delhi, Sep 28, 2016: In a befitting mode, India on Tuesday presented evidence to Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit that contains the details of two men arrested by Indian Investigation Agencies that belong to PoK and served as “guides” to help the terrorists cross over the Line of Control (LoC).

On September 18, four heavily armed assailants attacked an army camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri town which resulted in the death of 19 soldiers, the worst setback for the army in Kashmir in over a decade.

MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup also tweeted:

Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar also told the Pakistani High Commissioner that a third Pakistani recently arrested has disclosed that he trained with the terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) for several weeks.

This is the second time that India has summoned the Pakistan diplomat over the deadly Uri terror attack.

S Jaishankar had summoned Abdul Basit on September 21 and told him that the latest terrorist attack in Uri only underlines that the infrastructure of terrorism in Pakistan remains active.

Earlier, Pakistan demanded an international probe to “unearth the facts” into the terror attack on Uri, terming India’s allegations that the militants were from Pakistan as “baseless”.

Meanwhile, Amid tensions between India and Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will set to boycott the SAARC Summit scheduled to be held in Pakistan, said the government on Wednesday.
