New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh slammed Pakistan for the serial terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday and demanded that it should stop these incidents.
The Home Minister told reporters that Pakistan gives shelter to terrorists which results in repeated incidents in the Kashmir valley.
"Pakistan gives shelter to terrorists, it should answer for that. If Pakistan can't stop these incidents, they should speak to India about it," he said.
Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju also said that security forces are responding to attacks in Jammu and Kashmir appropriately.
"Definitely there are elements in the valley to destabilise the election process; attacks are unfortunate," he said.
A total of 20 people, including eight army men, were killed and at least 11 injured on Friday in a string of brazen militant strikes at an army camp and a police checkpost in Kashmir's Uri sector.
Mr Modi will address an election rally in Srinagar on Monday. The state is in the midst of the five-phase assembly elections, with the next phase scheduled for Dec 9. The polls began on November 25 and end on December 20, with the vote count to be held December 23.
