Army Chief in Kashmir to pay Tributes to Martyred Soldiers

Srinagar, Dec 06: A Day after the serial terrorist attacks rocked the Kashmir valley, Indian Army chief Dalbir Singh Suhag visited the attack sites to pay tributes to the martyred Jawans who were killed in the gun battle.

Dalbir Singh Suhag arrived in Srinagar to take stock of the situation and paid tributes to the soldiers, who were killed in the terror attack at the Army camp in Uri.

Reports said that Pakistani intruders are waiting across the Line of Control (LoC) to cross over into the Indian territory to create panic in the Kashmir region. As per reports, the Pakistani Army and the ISI, in a joint move, are aiming to push infiltrators into Jammu and Kashmir to disrupt the ongoing poll process there.

The terrorists stormed into the valley targeting different parts of the state on Friday. They carried out four attacks in the poll-bound state warning the voters and the government to stay away from the ongoing polls. Intelligence reports said that Pakistan was behind the attack as the Indian army recovered arms and ammunition from the terrorists that had sign of Pakistan.

Army recovered six AK-47 rifles, shotguns, night-vision goggles, magazines, grenades etc. The militants were carrying Indian currency. Further the involvement of Pakistan in the attacks emerged more as the terrorists were carrying food packets with Urdu markings. These food packets are commonly used by the Pakistani Army. Also, sources said the amount of food that was carried by the terrorists shows they were in for a long haul.

Despite the attacks, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will go ahead with the rallies in Jammu and Kashmir as per schedule.

The US has strongly condemned the terrorist attacks saying that the country is committed to work with India to fight terrorism in all forms. "The United States strongly condemns the terrorist attacks in Kashmir, which claimed the lives of innocent civilians, military, and police personnel," a senior State Department official said on Friday.

It was the black Friday in the Kashmir valley as 21 people, including eight Army men, were killed and at least 10 were injured in a series of militant strikes in Uri, Soura, Sophian and Tral. However, the Indian army gunned down all the militants and proved their chivalry once again. The attacks came just days ahead of a rally to be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday in Srinagar for the Assembly Elections.
