New Delhi: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Monday said the timing, methodology and location of the Gurdaspur attack is 'eerily similar' to the attacks in the border belt of Jammu.
"Will be very interested to see what emerges about the identity of the terrorists involved in the Gurdaspur attack this morning," Abdullah tweeted.
"The timing of the attack, methodology and location are all eerily similar to attacks in the border belt of Jammu," he added.
Meanwhile, the death toll in the attack has risen to eight, including six civilians and two home guards.
Four civilians have also sustained injuries.
The gun battle between the security forces and alleged terrorists ensued after the latter opened fire on the police station and a bus.
