Four terrorists allegedly crossed the border into Hiranagar in Jammu before heading to Gurdaspur, 85 km away. The terrorists, wearing army uniforms, attacked a bus station and stormed a police station in Dinanagar.

Five bombs were also found on a railway track in the state where India fought Sikh insurgency in the 1980s.
