On 5 August, terrorist Mohammed Naveed, who claims to be a Pakistani citizen, was captured when he tried to escape after attacking a BSF convoy along with another militant in Udhampur.
Naveed had told the investigators that he is from Faisalabad in Pakistan.
However, Pakistan refused to accept Naveed as its citizen, even though India's Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that the Udhampur terrorist had come from across the border.
