New Delhi: Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla on Monday briefed a group of foreign envoys, including from the US, Russia and France on the planned terror attack by Pakistan-based terrorist group JeM in Nagrota in Jammu which was foiled by security forces on November 19, sources said.These heads of missions were provided with a comprehensive “information docket” giving the details of the incident, and also a list of items and ammunition recovered from terrorists, clearly indicating their Pakistani origins.They were also briefed on how the terrorists got into India which is now clear through the discovery of an underground tunnel in the Samba sector in Jammu and Kashmir, sources said.
Jammu: BSF troops on Monday shot dead a Pakistani intruder along the International Border (IB) in Samba district, officials said.The body is lying on the zero line and has not been retrieved yet, they said.The officials said the incident took place in the Check Faqeera border outpost area when BSF personnel noticed some suspicious movement of a person who was trying to sneak into the Indian side from Pakistan.The intruder was challenged but he paid no heed and was subsequently shot dead, they said, adding an operation is on to retrieve the body of the deceased.The incident comes a day after the BSF detected a 150-metre-long underground tunnel suspected to be used by four Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists for infiltration from Pakistan recently.
It was shared with the heads of missions how preliminary investigations by the police and intelligence authorities led India to believe that the terrorists who had planned the attacks in Nagrota belonged to Pakistan-based Jaish-e- Mohammad, a terrorist organisation proscibed by the UN, they added.It is learnt that the envoys of the US, Russia, France and Japan were among those who were part of the briefing.The envoys were briefed about markings on the recovered AK47 rifles and other items, sources said.The foreign secretary also briefed the envoys about the possible implications of these planned attacks on security, diplomacy and the battle against terrorism, they said.Four suspected JeM terrorists, who were hiding in a truck, were killed by security forces near Nagrota in an encounter on Thursday morning after which the government asserted that a major terror attack was foiled by the security forces. They were travelling in a truck which was stopped for checking at Ban toll plaza on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway.A huge cache of arms and ammunition including 11 A K assault rifles, three pistols, 29 grenades and six UBGL grenades were recovered from the possession of the slain terrorists, who, according to police, had come to execute a big plan to disrupt District Development Council polls in the UT, slated to be held in eight phases beginning November 28.
