No security lapse in Anantnag terrorist attack: Governor's advisor

SRINAGAR: Advisor to Jammu and Kashmir Governor Vijay Kumar on Thursday ruled out any security lapse in yesterday's terrorist attack in south Kashmir's Anantnag district.

"The attack took place where civilians were moving. The attack was not at a place of isolation. It was not a security lapse. Still only within seven to ten minutes proper action was underway to tackle the terrorist attack," Kumar told media men on the sidelines of wreath laying ceremony of CRPF martyrs at Humhama in Budgam district.

He said that the attack was claimed by the Al Umar terrorist outfit and added that sufficient precautions will be taken for the smooth conduct of the upcoming Amarnath yatra.
