Lashkar-e-Taiba Claims Responsibility For Uri Attack, Posters Announcing Last Rites Of One Of The Attackers Comes Up

Pakistan based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba has claimed responsibility for the Uri terror attack that killed 20 Indian soldiers last month in Kashmir.

Posters have appeared in Gujranwala town announcing that the Lashkar-e-Taiba will be holding last rites in absentia for one of the four terrorists who attacked the Indian Army’s 12 Brigade at Uri, killing 20 soldiers and sparking off the worst India-Pakistan crisis in years.

The posters are the first hard evidence for Indian allegations that the attacks were carried out by a Pakistan-based jihadist group — until now been denied by Islamabad.

The posters name one perpetrator as Gujranwala resident Muhammad Anas, who operated under the alias Abu Siraqa. They invite local residents to join namaaz prayers for the Lashkar-e-Taiba’s “lion-hearted holy warrior Abu Siraqa Muhammad Anas, who sent 177 Hindu soldiers to hell at the Uri Brigade camp in occupied Kashmir, and thus drank from the glass of martyrdom”.

Bearing images of Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, the head of the Lashkar-e-Taiba’s parent organisation, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the posters say the ghaybana namaaz janaza, or last rites held in the absence of the body of the deceased, will be held at Bada Nullah, near Girjakh, in the Punjab town of Gujranwala.

National Investigations Agency detectives had struggled to identify the perpetrators of the assault, or produce evidence of the group that carried out the attack, until posters appeared in Gujranwala. Two German-manufactured eTrex global positioning sets had been recovered from the attackers, but one was too badly damaged by fire for data to be retrieved. A second is still being studied by forensic experts.

ENCOUNTER

Though syringes, painkillers, other medications and packets of ready-to-eat food carried by the terrorists bore the markings of several Pakistani manufacturers, linking the perpetrators to that country, these offered no evidence on the identity or affiliations of the terrorists themselves.

Lashkar teams have staged a series of increasingly bold attacks on Indian military units over the past year, notably one on soldiers of 24 Punjab Regiment and 31 Field Regiment near Uri last year, which claimed the lives of eight soldiers and three police personnel. In that case, global positioning set data showed the team had originated in the town of Chham, across the Line of Control, but the perpetrators remain unidentified.
