Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir police on Thursday claimed that terrorists involved in Wednesday’s Udhampur attack on a BSF convoy were trained 'fidayeens' and backed by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

"During the course of preliminary investigation, it transpired that the terrorists involved in the attack are trained 'fidayeens' and backed by Pakistan's ISI in order to wage war against the government of India," police said.

 

Asked about the route used by the militant to cross over to J&K from Pakistan, Inspector General of BSF, Jammu Frontier, Rakesh Sharma, said, "It is matter of investigation. Interrogation is being done by J&K Police. I cannot definitely say anything on that."

Replying to another question whether the attack was meant for Amarnath yatra convoy, he said, "It is matter of interrogation what was their intentions. One terrorist has been captured alive and I hope to get some facts out".

Sharma said that there is best possible security along International Border and it is not easy to cross over to this side.

On the question whether BSF was a target, he said it was chance and BSF was not main target of terrorists. "They were looking for a target and BSF convoy passed and it was targeted."

He said that BSF will conduct assessment of border belt along IB and if there is any goof-up in security we will take action.
