J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah may have complimented the security forces for their swift response and containing the damage but the senior police authorities are a worried lot.
On Friday despite receiving flash message around 4.47 a.m about the possible militant strike in the police control room it took more than two and half hours for the alert security forces to establish first contact with the fidayeens.
According to the Defence PRO in Jammu the first contact with the fidayeen was made around 7.30 a.m near Janglote area in Kathua outside the army camp.
Between Dayalachak and Janglote, the 22 km of distance can be easily covered in 30-40 minutes but it took more than two hours for the security forces to establish first contact.
No where in the security establishment is aware of the fact where and how the fidayeens spent the time and how they went untraceble on the radar of the security forces between Dayalachak and Janglote.
