Pakistan denies hand in Udhampur terror attack

New Delhi: Despite explosive revelations from captured terrorist Naved alias Usman, Pakistan has denied any role in Udhampur terror attack in which two BSF jawans were martyred.

According to a statement from Pakistani Foreign Office, spokesperson Syed Qazi Khalilullah dismissed the Indian claim as baseless saying India should first provide evidence that the captured terrorist was from Pakistan.

The Pak FO added that they have constantly asked India to refrain from accusations.

Pakistan's denial comes after Indian claim that Usman Faisal, a militant captured on Wednesday after a deadly attack on a military convoy in the Kashmir region, was a Pakistani.

On Wednesday morning, Usman Khan and Nomen Khan ambushed a BSF convoy in Udhamur, killing two soldiers and injuring eight others.

In the ensuing gun battle, Nomen was killed while Usman fled into the dense forests after taking three people hostage.Usman was later surrounded by a team of BSF and Army soldiers and a brief gun battle followed after which he was captured and taken for interrogation.
