EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 India tightened security on its border with Pakistan on Monday (July 27) after gunmen stormed a police station in the northern Indian state of Punjab, killing at least six people and wounding others. Officials denied earlier TV reports that the gunmen took hostages in the attack, which also hit a bus station. Home Minister Rajnath Singh said he had spoken to the head of India's Border Security Force and "instructed him to step up the vigil on India-Pakistan border". Harcharan Bains, an advisor to Punjab's chief minister, said a group of about five attackers came in a white Susuki-Maruti hatchback car, dressed in army uniforms. Five bombs were also found on a railway track in the state where Indian fought a deadly Sikh insurgency in the 1980s. The men were thought to have sneaked in from the neighbouring state of Jammu and Kashmir, NDTV said. The police station they stormed was in Gurdaspur district, which borders Pakistan.
