CHANDIGARH: The four-month-old Dinanagar terror attack case, in which three ultras were shot dead in an encounter with the Punjab police at Gurdaspur district, is all set to be transferred to the NIA, despite the state police’s reservations.
The BSF on Monday said they had not come across any evidence to ascertain that the ultras had infiltrated into the State from Pakistan.
The claim of the BSF is contrary to that of the Punjab Police. Also, the BSF claimed that the latter had not yet shared any conclusive information with it in connection with the investigation of the case.
BSF Inspector General of Police (Punjab Frontier) Anil Paliwal said, “The BSF has physically checked the entire Punjab border area, but there was not a single evidence to establish that the terrorists had used the Punjab border to enter Indian territory from the Pakistan side.” The Punjab Police had claimed that the ultras used the river area of Punjab to enter the State.
When asked about this, Paliwal said the Punjab Police had not shared any information. He added that the police were still probing the case.
