The Army on Saturday said the food packets recovered from the six slain militants, involved in the daring attack on the Uri camp, bore marks of the Pakistani establishment.

“The food packets, which were recovered from the encounter site, are generally used by Pakistan Army,” a senior Army officer said.

The officer said the recovery of food packets along with the arms and ammunition showed that the militants were planning to engage the security forces for a long time.

The encounter between the Army and the group of militants lasted just over six hours and left 11 security personnel, including eight Army soldiers dead. All the six militants were also killed.
