Hours after militants attacked two adjoining camps of Army and paramilitary in Jammu and Kashmir, Home Minister Rajnath Singh Monday said security forces were giving a ‘befitting reply’ to such attempts by Pakistan-based terrorist groups.

“Our security forces are giving a befitting reply,” he told reporters here when asked about the attacks on security forces by militants in the state.


Singh’s comments came hours after a BSF and adjoining army camps in Baramulla were attacked by heavily armed militants Sunday night.

The first major attack on security forces by terrorists came four days after the Indian Army launched surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

Last night’s attack in Baramulla took place exactly a fortnight after terrorists struck at the army brigade headquarters at Uri, 102 kms from Leh, killing 19 soldiers.

The Home Minister is on a two-day visit to Leh and Kargil to interact with a cross-section of people and take their suggestions on resolution of Kashmir issue.

Asked about his trip to Ladakh, Singh said he has come to understand the problems of the region by interacting with a cross section of people.

“Whatever problems the people face here, we will try to resolve them,” he said.

This is the fourth visit of the Home Minister to Jammu and Kashmir ever since the unrest began in the state following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani on July 8.

Singh had led an all-party delegation to Srinagar and Jammu on September 4-5.

The leaders of various political leaders met over 400 people who came in 50 different delegations representing various sections of society in Srinagar and Jammu.

Earlier, the Home Minister had visited Srinagar on August 24-25 and July 23-24.

        Feku should release his selfie taken during the "surgery". That will win him elections for next 15-20 years, just on the basis of new Jumlas.
