Pakistan not involved in Uri Attack: Indian NIA

NEW DELHI: Indian Investigation Agency on Wednesday refuted claims of Indian army and Modi-led administration about Pakistan’s involvement in Uri attack and freed two detained Kashmiris.

Faisal Hassan and Ahsan Khurshid were detained by India after a terror attack on brigade headquarters of Indian military in Uri Town of Occupied Kashmir’s Baramulla District last year that left over a dozen soldiers killed.

National Investigation Agency of India has freed the two youths after refuting the allegations. In agency’s statement over the issue, it has been stated that there was no evidence found that linked the detained suspects with any terrorist organisation.

A report issued in this regard states that both Ahsan and Faisal crossed the border from Azad Kashmir into India over disagreements with families.

The two Pakistani youths were handed over to Border Security Force and the custody is soon to be given to Pakistani authorities.

Attack on Indian military’s brigade headquarters on September 19 witnessed Pak-India relations spiraling down in the following days. Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing along the Line of Control damaging several mosques, schools and injuring locals in multiple sectors.

Indian forces and the government held Pakistan responsible for sponsoring terror but no evidence was handed over.

Modi chaired a meeting of top chiefs of armed forces in war room in New Delhi as India switched to war mode after diplomatic failure to defend Kashmir occupation in United Nations Organisation in the following weeks.
