Hazaribagh (Jharkhand): A day after terror strikes rocked the Kashmir Valley, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday said terrorists tried to attack Indian democracy but brave jawans sacrificed their lives protecting the country's security.

The Prime Minister also paid tributes to martyrs who laid down their lives while fighting militants.

"Terrorists tried to attack the democracy of India. But the brave jawans scarified their lives protecting the country's security," he told an election rally here.

"I pay my tributes to Jharkhand's brave son Sankalp Kumar Shukla and other brave jawans who scarified their lives. Sankalp Kumar Shukla's martyrdom will be remembered by future generations in the state," he said.

Kashmir Valley was yesterday rocked by four attacks by militants from across the border, who stormed an army camp in Uri leaving 11 security personnel including Lt Colonel Sankalp Kumar dead and killed two civilians in Tral.

The attacks and gun battles with security forces left in all 21 people dead. Among them was a top commander of Pakistan-based terror outfit LeT and seven militants.

Modi, who will be holding a rally in Srinagar city on Monday, had condemned the terror attacks as "desperate attempts" to derail the atmosphere of hope created by the increased voter turnout and saluted the soldiers who laid down their lives for the nation.
