New Delhi: In the aftermath of the Tral encounter which ended in South Kashmir on Saturday, Defence expert Wing Commander (Retd.) Praful Bakshi on Monday said retaliating when attacks have happened is a wrong policy, adding that at least two surgical strikes in a week should be done by India.
“We must retreat in their area and show that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) is our area and we will take it. At least two surgical strikes in a week should be done by India,” Wing Commander (Retd.) Bakshi reportedly told media.
“The government said that they will take appropriate steps but that does not mean that they will increase the security officers. This is a wrong policy that we will not attack but only respond when attacks have happened,” he added.
Echoing similar sentiments, another Defence Expert Major General (Retd.) P.K. Sehgal extended support to Army Chief Bipin Rawat for his strict action message that those who would help the militants would be punished.
“If these things are happening continuously that the Kashmiri youth are supporting the militants and injuring, killing our people then the nation has to accept that and act accordingly,” he added.
As many as two terrorists, three Army personnel and one policeman were killed in the encounter that broke out at Tral in south Kashmir on Saturday.
