One of the terrorists was caught alive in the Udhampur attack.The relations between the two countries suffered another blow recently with Pakistan refusing to invite Jammu and Kashmir assembly speaker to a conference of Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, in protest to which India decided to boycott the meet to be held in Islamabad from 30 September to 8 October.
