No record to suggest that some Sri Lanka bombers visited Kashmir: Police chief

SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Police chief Dilbag Singh on Sunday said there was no record to suggest that any of the suicide bombers, who carried out the Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka, had visited Kashmir as claimed by the Army chief of the island nation.

Talking to media, Singh said they have not received any information from the Island nation through diplomatic channel but the persons whose names appeared on social media have not travelled to Kashmir.

“We have checked and there is no information about them having visited here,” Singh said, adding immigration records were re-visited after the terrorist attacks and none of the bombers had visited Kashmir.

He was reacting to a day after claims were made by Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake, Commander of the Sri Lankan Army, on BBC that “they (the suspects) have gone to India, they’ve gone to Kashmir, Bangalore, they’ve travelled to Kerala state. Those are the information available with us.” (AGENCIES)
