Jammu and Kashmir Police chief Dilbag Singh Sunday said there was no record to suggest that any of the suicide bombers, who carried out the Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka, had visited Kashmir as claimed by the Army chief of the island nation.

Singh said they have not received any information from the Island nation through diplomatic channel but the persons whose names appeared on social media have not travelled to Kashmir. “There is no information about them having visited here,” Singh said, adding immigration records were revisited after the attacks and none of the bombers had visited Kashmir.

His comments have come a day after Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake, Commander of the Sri Lankan Army, claimed “they (the suspects) have gone to India, they’ve gone to Kashmir, they’ve travelled to Kerala state.” Singh said the army chief of Sri Lanka should send evidence, through diplomatic channels, and that he would look into it.

Some officials said that a dozen Sri Lankan nationals had come to Kashmir this year and their credentials have been re-checked.
