SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Sunday slammed Pakistan over the terror attack on an army camp in Uri and said the neighbouring country was working only on disturbing the state.

Asked how terrorists could infiltrate India and carry out the attack, Singh said: "The border is long." The minister also blamed the "situation during monsoons".

"It is a proxy war. A country that is Pakistan is focusing on how to disturb Jammu and Kashmir," he said. Singh said that it was a "fidayeen" attack.

Heavily-armed militants attacked the army camp at Uri early in the morning, killing 17 soldiers and wounding many others. Security forces shot dead all four attackers and launched a mop-up operation.
