New Delhi, Sept 18 (IBNS): Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday said perpetrators of Uri terror attack will be punished.

In his Twitter page, the Minister wrote: "Uri terror attack is a highly condemnable act of cowardice. Salute to our soldiers who gave supreme sacrifice to protect the motherland."

The state of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday witnessed one of the deadliest attacks in a decade's time when four heavily armed terrorists sneaked into the 12 Brigade Army camp in Uri sector, leaving 17 jawans killed.

The terror strike took place 100 kms from state capital Srinagar, in North Kashmir Uri town near the line of control.

Hundreds of army jawans were sleeping in tents when terrorists threw grenades and started heavy firing on tents, leaving 17 army personnel dead.
