GPS devices found on three militants killed during the terror attack at Gurdaspur in Punjab suggest they came from Pakistan across Ravi river, a finding that could ratchet up India-Pakistan diplomatic tensions amid renewed peace efforts.

The 11-hour siege on Monday ended after government forces surrounded the building in Dinanagar town and gunned down the three militants suspected to be from Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). The area’s superintendent of police (detective), Baljit Singh, was among those killed, apart from three security personnel and three civilians.

The terror strike came weeks after prime ministers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif met in Russia and agreed that top security officers from the two countries would meet to discuss counter-terrorism.

In the last few weeks, there have some incidents of ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the international border as well.
