As the Indian Army wound up a two-week operation to hunt down infiltrators at the Keran sector in Kashmir, described as the biggest such drive in recent times, several questions were left unanswered, media reports said.
A report by The Indian Express on Wednesday raised questions about the veracity of the army operations against the militants including the fact that despite claims of 30-40 infiltrators no bodies were recovered following the encounters.
Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said, "Some lapses were there. We had information about possible infiltration attempts in the entire belt (Indo-Pak border along Jammu sector)."
The government has also reportedly asked for more information on how three terrorists stormed first into a police station and then an Army camp on September 26, killing 10 people including a Lieutenant Colonel in Samba near Jammu, before being shot dead.
