Speaking to reporters, Congress's chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala alleged the government had proved a "total failure".

He asked the prime minister when will his administration formulate a policy to deal with terrorism emanating from Pakistan.

"The attack is an evidence of how the Modi government has compromised and toyed with national security. The question is what is Modiji and his government doing? When will we see the 56-inch chest?" Surjewala asked.

Earlier in the day, security forces gunned down three Jaish-e-Mohammed militants who stormed a BSF camp near the high-security Srinagar airport. An assistant sub-inspector of the force was also killed in the gunfight.
