Indian Army Retaliating To Pakistani Aggression, Says Army Chief


New Delhi: Amid an increasing demand for strong action against Pakistan for the mutilation of two Indian soldiers, Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat on Thursday said that security forces do not talk about future plans in advance.

Naib Subedar Paramjeet Singh and BSF Head Constable Prem Singh were slain by Pakistan Border Action Team (BAT) who sneaked in 250 metres into Indian territory in Poonch of J&K on May 1.

Speaking to the media, Rawat said, “We don’t talk about future plans beforehand; we share details after execution.”

“We have been retaliating and we will continue to do so. There is nothing new in it,” he added.

Stating that Pakistani terrorists are attempting infiltration, he said, “During summer, once the snow melts, infiltration attempts increase. We are taking measures and have beefed up counter infiltration operations.”

Meanwhile, security forces on Thursday launched a massive anti-militancy operation at multiple places in south Kashmir’s Shopian district, despite stone-pelting mobs.

The operations have been launched in six villages falling under Zainapora area in Shopian after security forces received information about movement of militants there, a police official said.

Recently, videos of large groups of militants — in some cases as many as 30 — have surfaced on social media, despite a ban imposed by authorities on 22 such sites and applications.
