India says Punjab attackers came from Pakistan

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The gunmen who stormed a police station and killed seven people in India’s Punjab came from Pakistan, according to preliminary evidence, India’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh told parliament on Thursday.

In a statement shorn of the nationalist rhetoric the ruling party is known for, Singh warned of a forceful response to any attempt to undermine India’s territorial integrity or security but did not specify any response to Monday’s attack.

The three gunmen were killed after a 12 hour siege.
