It was a well planned attack, Afzal Guru,Talha Rasheed and Noor Mohammad is written on this bag in Urdu while Something Written can be seen on UBGL fitted with AK 47.
Srivastava said the militant killed on Monday morning was a foreign national. Security forces found an AK-47 on him with an inscription: “Afzal Guru ka Badla,” said CRPF IG Ravideep Sahi said.
The inscription is in line with Jaish’s method of linking its attack with the 2013 hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. In fact, 2014-15 saw a series of early morning attacks in Jammu and Kashmir where attackers left a note about the attack being a revenge for Afzal Guru’s hanging.
Even in the January 2016 attack on Pathankot Air Base, attackers had similarly left a note on Afzal Guru in the car they had hijacked to reach the Air Base. In the Nagrota camp attack, too, a note was left behind with attackers calling themselves as being part of the “Afzal Guru Squad”.
“This is an old ploy of JeM to give its attack a local flavour and absolve Pakistan of any responsibility,” a security establishment officer said.
