“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 while making a statement in the Rajya Sabha on the terrorist attack in Dinanagar town in Gurdaspur district of Punjab on July 27.

The home minister informed the Rajya Sabha that the three terrorists might have infiltrated taking advantage of heavy rains and swollen ‘nullahs’ along the India-Pakistan border.

In his statement made amid a din and anti-government slogans by the opposition, Rajnath Singh 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 union home minister said that 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.
