Jammu: The terrorists who attacked an Indian Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Nagrota area on Tuesday and killed seven defence personnel, including two officers, carried out the strike in order to take revenge for Parliament attacks convict Afzal Guru.
As combing operations continued in Nagrota a day after the attack, the Army today said it has recovered documents written in Urdu from the three attackers, who were all killed.
One of the documents have Guru’s name. “The first installment in revenge for killing Afzal Guru,” said the text in Urdu.
Guru was convicted for the attack on Parliament in 2011 and subsequently hanged in a Delhi prison in 2013.
Most of the items recovered from the three terrorists in Nagrota, however, were found to be made in India, indicating that the terrorists perhaps had local support.
Intelligence agencies said it was not possible for the terrorists to travel from the border to Nagrota without any local help.
According to Army sources, the terrorists had planned the attack in six days.
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday asked for a detailed report from the Army regarding the fresh SOP and whether it’s being followed or not.
Parrikar mentioned that after November 24 report issued by the multi-agency center, a fresh SOP for heightened security of Army camps and bases was issued.
Meanwhile, the Indian Army chief General Dalbir Singh visited Nagrota today to take stock of the situation.
