NO LESSONS LEARNT

Nearly two years af­ter the Pathankot air­base at­tack, a tris­er­vices com­mit­tee, headed by Lt Gen Philip Cam­pose, sub­mit­ted its re­port, which is now gath­er­ing dust. The fi­day­een at­tack on the Sun­juwan camp in Jammu on Satur­day, which had been at­tacked pre­vi­ously in June 2003, came as no sur­prise. Nei­ther the Na­tional In­ves­ti­ga­tion Agency (NIA) nor any other in­tel­li­gence agency could have thought that un­der the garb of fre­quent fir­ing across the Line of Con­trol (LOC), mil­i­tants would have crossed the bor­der into In­dia. Keep­ing in view the an­niver­sary of hang­ing of Afzal Guru, in­tel­li­gence alerts were is­sued. De­spite that, mil­i­tants were able to carry out the at­tack. Is the govern­ment wait­ing for an­other ‘Kargil’ or the 2001 Par­lia­ment at­tack to hap­pen? Vijay Anand, Chandi­garh
