Condemning the terror attack in Uri, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 18 September said that those who were behind the despicable attack will not go unpunished.

The Uri attack took place during early hours of 18 September in which 17 Army jawans were martyred and four terrorists were neutralised in the encounter.

"We strongly condemn the cowardly terror attack in Uri. I assure the nation that those behind this despicable attack will not go unpunished. We salute all those martyred in Uri. Their service to the nation will always be remembered. My thoughts are with the bereaved families. Have spoken to Home Minister and Raksha Mantri on the situation. Raksha Mantri will go to Jammu & Kashmir himself to take stock of the situation," said the Prime Minister in a series of tweets.

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh called a high-level security meeting at his home which was attended by top ministry officials and the National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.
