Police on Saturday had arrested Singh, a deputy superintendent of police, at Mir Bazar in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam district, along with two Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists, besides an unidentified lawyer who was working as an overground worker for terror outfits.

Sambit Patra, Congress, BJP, Pakistan, BJP spokesperson, Jammu and Kashmir, Kulgam district, Amit Shah, Narendra Modi, Adhir Ranjan ChowdhuryPatra dared Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi to make it clear if they have any doubts on who were the perpetrators in the Pulwama attack.

The BJP on Tuesday asked the Congress to explain if it had any doubt about who were behind the Pulwama terror attack, in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed last year, and said the opposition party is “best at attacking India and protecting Pakistan”. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra hit out at the opposition party after its leaders cited the arrest of Jammu and Kashmir police DSP Davinder Singh for his links to terrorists to take a swipe at the RSS and to allege a “larger conspiracy” in the Pulwama attack. “I want to ask Sonia Gandhi and Rahul if they have any doubt about perpetrators of Pulwama attack. If you believe Pakistan was not behind it, then you should tell us clearly as to who were involved,” Patra said at a press conference.

Rahul Gandhi is working like an ally of Pakistan, he said, accusing the Congress of linking religion to terror attacks to target Hindus and said the party has a history of doing so. Congress leaders has invented terms like “saffron terror” and “Hindu terror”, and had linked the RSS to Mumabi terror attack, Patra said. Linking the Congress to Pakistan, Patra said there are “too many coincidences” that shows a conspiracy. “The Congress is best at attacking India and defending and protecting Pakistan,” he said.

While Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury in his tweets wondered about the real culprits involved in the last year Pulwama attack, his party colleague Randeep Singh Surjewala asked if Singh was a mere pawn and sought clarifications from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. Surjewala also alleged a larger conspiracy. Patra also recited limericks to liken the Congress to a “betrayer” and a python which devours its mother. Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan and Hafiz Sayeed, chief of terror organisation LeT, will soon be praising the Congress for its leaders’ statements, he claimed.
