Uri attack: MPs raise issue of 'intelligence failure'

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Some lawmakers today raised the issue of alleged intelligence failure in connection with the terror attack at the Army camp in Uri at a meeting of a Parliamentary panel held here today.

The issue was raised by a few MPs at the meeting of the Department Related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs, headed by leader P Chidambaram.



However, Chidambaram is said to have intervened and conveyed to the Parliamentarians that the issue of Uri terror attack was not on the agenda of the meeting hence it should not be raised, official sources said.

The meeting reviewed various aspects of border security along the Indo-and Indo-borders and the steps taken to check repeated incidents of cross-border terrorism.

The Parliamentary panel along with the top brass of the Home Ministry reviewed issues related to the security along the international borders and steps taken to enhance surveillance to check such incidents in future.

Home Ministry officials, led by Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi, briefed the MPs about the initiatives taken for round-the-clock surveillance and close coordination between the border guarding forces and armed forces, sources privy to the discussions said.

As many as 19 soldiers were killed in a terror attack at an Army camp in Uri on September 18. Ten days later, the Army carried our surgical strikes on terror launch pads across LoC.

Bilateral relations between India and have deteriorated following the two incidents.
