Terrorists killed three civilians in an attack in the early hours of January 9 on a General Reserve Engineering Force camp in Akhnoor sector in Battal village near LoC. The terrorists crossed the international border to carry out the dirty work.
In the attack, the three civilians, who were killed, worked as labourers in the GREF camp. ¬†Expecting further attacks, the army jawans have not only cordoned off the region, but have also started a counter operation in right earnest. Following terrorist attack on GREF camp, Akhnoor has been put on high alert, said defence sources.
Meanwhile, the Indian defence establishments said that the world must take strict measures to get rid of terrorism from its roots. There was no doubt that the Pakistani military establishment was responsible for training, funding and helping the terrorists infiltrate India.
Echoing similar sentiments, another defence expert said the intensity of the attacks have increased after the surgical strikes carried out by India. Quoting reliable sources, he said the terrorists are now concentrating their energies in Jammu-Pathankot area from the Valley.
