New Delhi: Investigators have found clinching evidence of Pakistan's involvement in July 27 terror attack in Punjab's Gurdaspur district.

The three terrorists who stormed a police station on the fateful day used gloves with “Made in Pakistan” tags said the panel of doctors in their autopsy report from Gurdaspur civil hospital.

The report said, “external appearance” that a “Made in Pakistan” label was found intact in the glove that one terrorist was wearing.

“After the operation was over on Monday, we had done a random search of the clothes the ultras were wearing. But no label was found in the clothes, including the undergarments,” a police was quoted as saying to Hindustan Times.

“The bodies are handed over to the doctors as found. It was while making the inventory and a close examination of the clothes the terrorists were wearing that the doctors found a ‘Made in Pakistan' tag intact in one glove of a terrorist.”

This vital evidence clearly pointed to the involvement of Pakistan in the terror attack, police sources told Hindustan Times.

“After the operation was over on Monday, we had done a random search of the clothes the ultras were wearing. But no label was found in the clothes, including the undergarments,” a police source said.

“The bodies are handed over to the doctors as found. It was while making the inventory and a close examination of the clothes the terrorists were wearing that the doctors found a ‘Made in Pakistan' tag intact in one glove of a terrorist.”

Also a Night Vision Device recovered from the terrorists is a US government property, that also brings their Afghan link in the light, the report added.

Investigators have informally shared details of the US-made night vision device with the FBI.

The board of doctors collected DNA samples of the terrorists and submitted a detailed report of the autopsy held on Friday to investigators.

Earlier this week, Home Minister Rajnath Singh had clearly said that the three attackers had infiltrated from Pakistan to carry out the strike, given the details from two Global Positioning System devices recovered from the militants.

However, Pakistan dismissed India's accusation, saying, "Pointing fingers without investigation is not a healthy trend”.

On July 27 three heavily-armed terrorists dressed in Army uniforms struck in Gurdaspur at around 5.30 am and stormed the police station, leading to a 12-hour gunbattle.

In the terror attack, three civilians, three Home Guards and one police officer lost their lives, he said, adding 10 civilians and seven security force personnel were also injured.
