In other news, a video that shows the Gurdaspur terrorists in army fatigues.


NDTV reports that just before they unleashed a massive attack in Punjab, the trio of men who would burst, with automatic weapons blazing, into a police station near the border with Pakistan, were captured on a security camera placed at Taragarh intersection just before they entered the town of Dinanagar.  


The footage shows the three men, wearing army fatigues, walking down the road at 4.55 am, AK47s in hand.  


Minutes later they tried unsuccessfully to snatch a tempo from its driver, killing a dhaba owner in the process. Next, they opened fire on a bus, injuring six passengers. 


A man heading to buy vegetables in his Maruti became their next target.  After taking a bullet in the shoulder, Kamaljit Singh crashed his car into a wall. 


The terrorists, he said, pulled him out of the car, shoved him onto the road, and drove away.  


After storming into a police station complex, they fought security forces for 12 hours, till they were killed. 


Police sources have said Chinese-made grenades were recovered from them, along with GPS devices that show the location of the police station had been programmed or entered into the system -it had been listed as a target in advance.
