Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will give a statement on Gurdaspur terror attack in Parliament on Tuesday, he told media persons amid a gunfight between the terrorists and security personnel in the Punjab town.
"I will give statement in Parliament tomorrow on Gurdaspur terror incident," media reports quoted the home minister as saying on Monday afternoon.
Earlier in the day, Rajnath called up Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal to find out about the situation in Gurdaspur. He also spoke to BSF director general DK Pathak and instructed him to step up the vigil on India-Pakistan border in the wake of attack.
The home minister posted a series of tweets after five terrorists, including a woman, targeted a police station and a bus carrying passengers.
"Spoke to Punjab Chief Minister Shri Prakash Singh Badal who apprised me of the developing situation in Gurudaspur. Also spoke to Home Secretary and NSA regarding the situation in Gurudaspur. Security forces have been rushed to the spot," Rajnath tweeted.
He said the ministry of home affairs (MHA) is monitoring the situation in Gurdaspur and other places of Punjab. He said he was confident that the situation would soon be under control.
