“Our convoy was not the target of the terrorists. They were waiting for some other target when our vehicles reached the spot,” Rakesh Kumar, Inspector General (IG) BSF, told reporters here.

The IG paid tribute to the two BSF troopers who were killed, saying: “They fought valiantly and also those who got injured in the attack.”

“Our boys prevented the terrorists from entering the vehicle and if the terrorists had managed to enter the vehicle, the damage would have been much heavier.”

The officer said that he cannot comment on disclosures made by the terrorist who was captured.

Asked whether the group was the same that carried out the Gurdaspur terror strike, the BSF officer said: “I cannot say whether the group was the same that carried out the Gurdaspur terror strike or not.”

“There are other agencies who are working to find out…,” he said.

A solemn wreath-laying function was held inside the BSF headquarters here to honour the two troopers killed in Wednesday’s attack.
