Peshawar attack shouldn't be given credence: Bangalore police chief

Bangalore, Dec. 18 (ANI): Bangalore Police Commissioner M N Reddi on Thursday said that the Peshawar terror attack should not be given too much credence as the context in which that incident took place was entirely different from that of India.

"It is far-fetched to think that what happened in Peshawar should lead to fear in our minds. It's natural that it will lead to that, but I don't think we should give much credence as the context in which that happened out there is entirely different from the context we find ourselves in," said Reddi.

"So, I don't think we need to attach too much importance but we need to be vigilant. So protecting your premises, minimum security and access control, these are matters that should be perpetually kept in mind," he added.

On Tuesday, members of the banned terrorist outfit Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) attacked the Army Public School in Peshawar. According to reports, the terrorists stormed the Peshawar school dressed as Frontier Corps' officers. One of the militants reportedly blew himself up, while the others were gunned down by security agencies. Hundreds of people were taken hostage within the school premises before the terrorists were eliminated.

After the incident, Saeed reportedly blamed India for the attacks and has allegedly vowed revenge, claiming the strikes were a conspiracy against Pakistan. (ANI)
