“The terrorist caught in Udhampur yesterday (Wednesday) has been brought to Jammu and is being questioned,” Rajnath Singh told parliament.

“Hopefully, we will get to know more about his plans to carry out terror attacks,” he said.

He condemned the terror attack on a Border Security Force (BSF) convoy in Udhampur district and said the government was planning to give gallantry awards to the troopers killed in the attack.

The troopers “from the BSF, Jammu and Kashmir Police and the CRPF played a crucial role… The government will provide ex-gratia and jobs to the family members of those killed”, he said.

He also appreciated the efforts by the villagers in nabbing the militant without caring for their lives.

“We will request the state government to reward them (villagers) for their bravery,” he added.

J&K attack attempt to destabilise peace: Rajnath (Lead)
New Delhi,  (IANS) Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday condemned the Udhampur terror attack and termed it an attempt by Pakistan to destabilise peace in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Two militants attacked Border Security Force (BSF) convoy in Udhampur in Jammu on Wednesday. Two jawans were killed and 14 were injured in the attack,” the home minister said in a statement in the Rajya Sabha.

“One of the two terrorists was killed and the other was arrested with the help of locals. The other terrorist has been brought to Jammu and interrogation is on. After initial interrogation, the terrorist has told his name is Naved, alias Mohammad Usman, and he is from Faisalabad,” Singh added.

The Rajya Sabha, which has been repeatedly disrupted since the beginning of the session, agreed to hear the minister’s statement on the attack in silence, with leader of opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad calling it a matter of great concern for the whole nation.

He said an AK-47 with magazines and explosives were recovered.

“This attack is an attempt by cross border terrorists to disrupt peace in Jammu and Kashmir. We condemn it,” he said.

He also expressed regret over the death of two BSF troopers, and those injured in the “mindless violence”.

Singh said that the government is considering gallantry awards for the BSF troopers, and has asked the state government to reward the villagers.

“BSF, Jammu and Kashmir police, and CRPF showed courage in limiting the damage and made the attack fail. For this courageous action, the kin of the deceased soldiers will be given compensation, jobs and will also be given gallantry awards,” he said.

“We specially appreciate the bravery of the villagers who risked their life and nabbed the terrorists. We have urged the state government to recognise and reward the action. We believe the arrested terrorist’s interrogation will give information on their modus operandi,” Singh added.

Soon after, there was a din in the house once again and it was adjourned till 12 noon.

  1. “Pakistani terrorist..” media quoting Home Minister

    I’m sure the ’44-seats’ party and its minority vote bank will have serious objections to the term ‘Pakistani Terrorist’. They will argue that terrorism has no religion and no nationality even though the captured terrorists came from Pakistan and belong to peaceful region.

    • ***”Pakistani terrorist..” media quoting Home Minister***

      – this post by Original Pai of USA, having dubious US origin and having links with RSS, is due to the fact that he is reminded of “Hindu Terrorism!” by the acts of his Pakistani counterparts. Ignore him!

  2. As I rightly suspected, sharia-abiding Pincode Pai has stepped out of madrasa to remind us the danger of imaginary ‘Hindu terrorism’ right after a bunch of ‘peaceful’ rats attacked and killed our soldiers. In fact, the rat that was caught has openly admitted on the camera that he was in India to kill ‘hindus’. Still, Pincode Pai fails to see the reality, partly due to his hatred towards RSS and partly due to his obsession with Nehru family. This guy puts Neville Chamberlain to shame when it comes to appeasement !! Yuk!

    • “Sharia-abiding Pincode Pai has stepped out of madrasa to remind us the danger of imaginary ‘Hindu terrorism’ right after a bunch of ‘peaceful’ rats attacked and killed our soldiers”; gloats RSS Pai!

      RSS Paimaam, have you ever uttered a word of disapproval when the RSS individuals give call to maim, kill and oust the Muslims from India? I shall give you full details, only after you answer my question.

      • Dear BN Paimaam,
        I totally reject any calls from anyone (RSS or not) promoting violence on innocent (minority, majority, animals, birds etc). groups. In fact, I have gone onto say how majority in any society have an added burden of making sure that the minorities are safe and thriving. I never support or encourage initiation of force as it totally goes against my libertarian philosophy. Go ahead and apologize to me for misrepresenting my views and also failing to reject terrorist orchestrated by Paakistaan.

        • Original RSS Duplicate Pai of USA says, “Go ahead and apologize to me for misrepresenting my views”.

          Paimaam I ASKED, “RSS Paimaam, have you ever uttered ?”.

          You have not stated that you have ever uttered a word of disapproval when the ***RSS*** individuals gave call to maim, kill and oust the Muslims from India.

          Thus, you have admitted the correctness of my charges. Yet, you demand apology from me! Should I apologise to you for having stated that which you have not denied?
