A closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage showing the three armed terrorists, who were killed in a gunbattle with security forces in Punjab's Gurdaspur district on Monday, was released on Tuesday.

The video was recorded around 4.55 am on 27 July. The three armed terrorists, dressed as army officials, are seen walking on the road with arms and ammunition in the footage, aired by NDTV.

The footage shows the terrorists' activity just minutes before they launched an attack on a passenger bus and then stormed into Dinanagar Police Station in Gurdaspur, killing at least eight people, including three civilians and five policemen. IPS officer Baljit Singh was among those martyred in the encounter.

The Indian Army, National Security Guard and the Punjab Police killed all three terrorists after more than 11-hour-long joint operation.

Eight grenades recovered from attack site

A day after the terror attack, the Punjab Police recovered eight grenades from the site of the attack in Gurdaspur. The bomb disposal squad defused one of the grenades.

A team of forensic experts from Chandigarh had arrived in Gurdaspur to examine the evidence from the spot and collect clues to establish the identities of the terrorists.

According to earlier reports, the GPS sets recovered from the assailants revealed that the terrorists had sneaked into the Indian side of the border from Pakistan's Shakargarh area. The reports also suggested that the attack on Dinanagar town was pre-planned.
