Wednesday’s militant strike is the first in Udhampur district in over a decade and comes days after terrorists attacked Dinanagar police station in Gurdaspur in Punjab.

“Those behind such attacks know very well that their terror designs won’t work for long in India,” said Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. The government and the security forces were doing their best to tackle such evil designs. “Without a doubt, the country’s respect, honour and the people’s security are the government’s topmost priority,” he said.

Congratulating the security forces, senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said catching a terrorist alive was a huge achievement. “In the coming days, we will get to know about the future attacks Pakistan has planned.” Mr. Azad, a former J&K Chief Minister, said Pakistan now stood completely exposed.

Former J&K Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah said: “India must give a strong warning to our neighbours that we cannot tolerate this any longer. On the one hand we talk about dialogue and on the other hand terrorism continues.”

BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said it was rare for a terrorist to be captured alive after an attack and it was a big achievement. “This can now be used as evidence before international agencies. This will give proper detailing to our forces also. And Pakistan that keeps denying its involvement in such incidents needs to face the truth now.”
