Pakistan on Monday condemned the terror attack in the Indian state of Punjab in which seven people — three civilians and four security personnel — were killed during an 11-hour gun battle.

“Pakistan extends heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the government and people of India and wish the wounded speedy and full recovery,” Dawn quoted Foreign Office spokesman Qazi Khalilullah as saying in a release.

“We condemn in the strongest terms the terrorist incident in Gurdaspur, India, today, in which a number of precious lives have been lost. There are reports of others having suffered injuries. Our thoughts are with the bereaved families,” the release said.

“Pakistan reiterates its condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. We extend heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the Government and people of India and wish the wounded speedy and full recovery,” the release said.

The attack took place earlier in the day in Punjab’s Gurdaspur district when terrorists in army fatigues hijacked a car reportedly near the Pakistan border, drove to Dinanagar, opened fire at a bus stand and then stormed a police station. All three terrorists were killed in the gun battle.
