NEW DELHI: Union Cabinet today condoled the death of the Punjab police personnel and civilians who lost their lives in the Gurdaspur terror attack.

Sources said a resolution was also adopted at the Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this regard. In a major terror attack, three fidayeen, believed to have come from Pakistan, had yesterday attacked passengers in a moving bus and stormed a police station, killing seven persons, including an SP, while all the terrorists were gunned down after a day-long operation.

In the pre-dawn attack, the terrorists, suspected to be members of either Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) or Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), in army fatigues first targeted a roadside eatery, then sprayed bullets on a passenger bus and later barged into the Dinanagar police station.
