Investigating officers looking into Nagrota terror attack on Army camp have exposed the links of three slain terrorists with Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Muhammad’s Al-Shohada Brigade, or Shaheed Afzal Guru Squad, formed in 2013.

The squad is suspected to have carried out the Pathankot terror attack as well. It has left behind a similar note in the car used to access the airbase.
Nagrota is barely 40 km from the international border, which is manned by the BSF.
Security agencies are worried of this increasing trend of attacking military installations despite them maintaining strict border vigil in the wake of the surgical strikes. They are also worried the ease with which these terrorists could breach the perimeter of the establishment.
Officials believe given the current level of hostilities with Pakistan, infiltration, which is double of levels seen last year, will remain high in the winter as well.
