The attack comes following intelligence inputs about possible terrorist attacks on security installations in Jammu and Kashmir after the Indian army carried out surgical strikes on September 29. Barely a fortnight ago, terrorists launched an assault on army’s brigade headquarters at Uri which left 19 soldiers dead.
The Indian army carried out retaliatory surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads early Thursday in PoK and there were apprehensions about possible suicide attacks on defence installations ever since.
