New Delhi: Defence expert on Sunday condemned the incident, in which a terrorist opened fire at the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers in Anantnag and injured a sub-inspector, saying that the Indian Army would soon counter the terrorist and take punitive action.
While speaking to ANI, defence expert Qamar Agha said, “Attacks on the CRPF have become quite frequent these days; since August 15, the number has increased. The militants in Pakistan have a large number of arms and ammunition. That is why, they are trying their level best to infiltrate into the country. So, these should be totally condemned.”
Echoing similar views, another defence expert Bishamber Dayal stated that terrorists would be countered soon. “This is an ongoing attempt by the terrorists, as this is an effort by them to remain viable around the borders. These attempts show that terrorists are desperate to prove their existence and are still ready to carry on their agenda and aim. I’m sure they will be countered soon,” he said.
Yesterday, a sub-inspector sustained a bullet injury on his right hand after an unknown militant from a car fired upon troops of 66 Bn CRPF, when they were on a road-opening duty.
The firing took place around 5:50 p.m. near the Mir Bazar Police Station. The injured officer was immediately rushed to the district hospital in Anantnag.
