Uri terror attack : PM Modi holds high level meeting chalk out strategy

New Delhi, Sept 19 (IBNS) : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday held a top level meeting to workout Government's strategy to counter terror attacks as the bodies of the soldiers killed in Sunday's deadly attack at the Uri army camp in Jammu and Kashmir are being flown back to their homes, reports said.

The Prime Minister held  a review meeting with Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley after being briefed of the latest development on the Uri incicent.

Rajnath Singh held a separate meeting with Parrikar and Army Chief Dalbir Singh.

On Sunday morning, four terrorists sneaked into the army base and went on making brush firing after throwing grenades that killed soldiers sleeping in tents that caught fire.

Twenty soldiers were injured, seven of them critically.

All the four attackers were also killed in gun battle.

The Government has  said the attack is the handiwork of Jaish-e-Mohammad, a Pakistan-based terror outfit and the arms seized from the possession of the slain terrorists bore the stamps of Pakistan.

Blaming Pakistan for the incident, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has called it a  terrorist state and said  it should be isolated.

Pakistan has, however, denied the allegation, describing it as "baseless and irresponsible."

The terrorists are believed to have crossed a canal along the Line of Control and launched attack on the army camp, located nearby.
