Sunjuwan army camp terror attack: Pakistan calls involvement allegations as 'irresponsible', accuses India of carrying out smear campaign against Islamabad
Pakistan rejected allegations that it was involved in the terror attack on Sunjuwan army camp, saying Indian media and officials make 'irresponsible' statements even before any investigation is initiated.
Islamabad: Pakistan on Sunday rejected allegations that it was involved in the terror attack on Sunjuwan army camp, saying Indian media and officials make "irresponsible" statements even before any investigation is initiated.
The Foreign Office spokesperson also accused India of carrying out a "smear campaign against Pakistan and the deliberate creation of war hysteria."
"It is a well established pattern that Indian officials begin making irresponsible statements and levelling unfounded allegations, even before any proper investigation in any incident has been initiated," the Foreign Office spokesperson said, when asked about the attack on Sunjuwan army camp in Jammu.
"A particular segment in the Indian media runs with their innuendos to malign Pakistan and whips up public frenzy. We are confident that the world community would take due cognisance of India's smear campaign against Pakistan, and the deliberate creation of war hysteria," the spokesperson said.
A group of heavily armed Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists struck the sprawling camp of the 36 brigade of Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry in the early hours on Saturday, triggering a gunbattle.
Security forces have neutralised three terrorists holed up in the army camp while six people, including five army personnel, were killed in the attack.
The latest attack on the camp took place nearly 15 months after the Jammu region was hit by a similar attack.
On 29 November, 2016, terrorists had stormed the army's Nagrota camp on the outskirts of the city, killing seven army personnel, including two officers. Three terrorists were gunned down in the operation.
Intelligence inputs had warned of an attack on an army or security establishment by Jaish-e-Mohammed in view of the death anniversary of Afzal Guru, who was hanged on 9 February, 2013, for the 2001 attack on Parliament House.
