Punjab terror attack: Is there a 'China' angle?

Gurdaspur: The terrorists, who launched a terror strike in the Gurdaspur district in Punjab on Monday, had 'Made in China' grenades with them.

According to Director General of Punjab Police Sumedh Singh Saini, the terrorists were carrying sophisticated weapons. "We have recovered 'Made in China' grenades from them. They were wearing combat fatigues," he said.

Saini said AK 47 guns and hand grenades were recovered from the terrorists, who had attacked the sentry at the police station before engaging with the SHO and the SP.

He had described the attack as "planned" as their modus operandi pointed at a specific direction.

Preliminary probe into the terror strike in Dinanagar town that left seven persons dead indicates that the three suspected Lashkar-e-Toiba militants had entered the country from Pakistan through Bamiyal village close to the International Border.

The four-member team led by Davinder Pal Sehgal and Ashwani Kumar have begun their investigations into the strike that left the Punjab stunned.

Seven persons--three civilians, Superintendent of Police (Detective), Baljit Singh, a Punjab provincial service officer and three home guards were killed by the terrorists yesterday.

The terrorists were gunned down after a day-long operation.

Dinanagar town, which is close to Pakistan, falls in Gurdaspur district. It is sandwiched between Gurdaspur town on the one side and Pathankot on the other and lies about 260 km from capital Chandigarh.
