PM Narendra Modi assured the nation that those behind the “despicable strike will not go unpunished.”

Meanwhile, Home Minister Rajnath Singh condemned the attack and said, “Deeply distressed at the terror incident in Uri and the loss of 17 brave soldiers martyred. I pray for the speedy recovery of the injured.My heartfelt condolences to the families of the martyred soldiers. Those behind this terror incident would be brought to justice.”

The base was located barely a few kilometres from the Line of Control (LoC) and some 70 km from Srinagar, where the jawans of the Dogra Regiment were sleeping in a tent which caught fire due the explosion. The fire also engulfed the nearby barracks, the sources said.

The four terrorists, suspected to be from Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), who carried out the devious attack, were neutralised after a three-hour long gun battle.
