The Government on Friday said the country, especially Jammu and Kashmir, remains vulnerable to militant attacks sponsored by forces from across the border.

Complimenting the state police and CRPF for successfully eliminating two militants in Lal Chowk area of Srinagar on Wednesday, Home Minister P Chidambaram said the militants were in communication with their handlers outside the country.

"The incident highlights the fact that the country, especially Jammu and Kashmir, remains vulnerable to militant attacks sponsored by forces from across the border," he said in a statement.

The Home Minister said at the same time the country's capacity to neutralise a militant attack has also increased
considerably.

"I would emphasise once again that the country, especially the security forces, must remain in high level of
vigilance but there is no cause for panic. We must remain calm and confident that our security forces can face any
challenge," he said.
