New Delhi: The attack on the military camp in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday that left 17 soldiers dead is “a serious security lapse”, former Defence Minister and Congress leader A K Antony said.
“This incident comes close on the heels of what happened in Pathankot. At both these places militants managed to enter the military camps and this is a huge security lapse,” Mr Antony told the media.
“The Kashmir issue is drifting and reaching dangerous propositions. All this is happening with the knowledge of Pakistan,” he added.
Terrorists shot dead seven military personnel at an Indian Air Force base at Pathankot in Punjab in January.
