Gurdaspur terror attack: No tags on terrorists' clothes, GPS devices may give clues

 The three suspected Lashkar-e- Taiba militants involved in the Gurdaspur terror attacks made every attempt to hide their identity and had even removed tags on their clothes including underwears.

New Delhi: The three suspected Lashkar-e- Taiba militants involved in the Gurdaspur terror attacks made every attempt to hide their identity and had even removed tags on their clothes including underwears.

There were no markings on the combat uniforms and even innerwears worn by them, official sources said.

The terrorists were not carrying any food items except for some loose dryfruits.

However, the two GPS devices recovered from the slain terrorists could give an idea of where they had started their journey from before reaching Gurdaspur, the sources said.

The terrorists were carrying three AK 47 rifles, several Chinese-made grenades, besides 10 magazines with more than 200 rounds of ammuntion.

Absence of bullet-proof vehicles with Gurdaspur police delayed the final onslaught against the terrorists which became possible only after help arrived from neighbouring Jammu and Kashmir Police.

The militants are believed to have crossed over into India from Hira Chak in Jammu, the sources said and ruled out the possibility of their being Sikhs
