Union home minister Rajnath Singh has told Rajya Sabha that the terrorists who carried out attack in a police station and killed seven people in Gurdaspur, Punjab came from Pakistan. He said the three terrorists might have infiltrated taking advantage of heavy rains and swollen ‘nullahs’ along the India-Pakistan border.

Singh, creating a statement in the Upper House, about the recent attack in Dinanagar town, said, “Any attempts to attack the unity and integrity of India will get a befitting reply. We are dedicated to stopping all terror activities being done from across the border.” He said the government has been and will remain resolute in the regard.

Rajnath Singh, in his statement, also lauded the Punjab Police for neutralising the three terrorists. He said that information was being gathered from the Global Positioning System device seized from the terrorists who, he said, also had a night vision device. The Border Security Force was always on the alert though some terrorist might have succeeded in infiltrating due to heavy rains and swelling of rivers and nullahs on the border, he said.
