The BSF ruled out any breach of the International Border by the three militants of a suicide squad,that killed 12 persons in twin attacks on September 26,and said the act was staged and guided from Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir.

“There was no breach of the IB or fencing by militants involved in the twin attacks on September 26… The DG (BSF) has come to know that they have not crossed the IB but came here from Rajouri,” DIG BSF,Virender Singh told reporters during a media trip to the forward border areas along the IB,on Friday. “They were launched from Rajouri. There they were staying with some Gujjars and engineered the attack… The person who masterminded the attacks was also from Rajouri… His code name was H34… He has not been tracked down,” he said. “The DG (BSF) has given a bold statement in this regard… He must have definite clues,” he added. “BSF never ruled out the possibility of infiltration along the IB…But there should be telltale signs of crossing,” Singh said. “During our investigations we found fences along the IB intact,” he reasoned.
