AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday hit out at the PDP-BJP alliance in Jammu and Kashmir over the recent terror attacks in the state, including the one at Sunjuwan camp and the encounter in Srinagar’s Karan Nagar. Terming the attacks as a “failure” of the state government, he said that it is now time to think who should take the responsibility.

He further said that five out of the seven people killed in the attack at Sunjuwan military camp were Muslims. He added that people who question the loyalty of Muslims and still refer to them as ‘Pakistani’ should take a lesson from this.

Earlier in the day, the wreath-laying ceremony for four of the army personnel who lost their lives in the Sunjuwan Military camp attack was held at the airport in Jammu in the presence of Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti and deputy chief minister Nirmal Singh.

A group of heavily-armed men struck the sprawling camp of the 36 brigade of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry before dawn on 10 February, killing six people including five soldiers.

Meanwhile, the encounter in Srinagar’s Karan Nagar ended after 28 hours. The encounter between militants and security forces, which began on Monday after the ultras tried to attack a CRPF camp, resumed Tuesday morning after an overnight lull. Security forces had launched a final assault on the terrorists hiding in an under construction building in Karan Nagar area Tuesday morning.
