Indian army chief has given a stern warning to Pakistan. He said that Pakistan will have to pay for attack at Sunjuwan military camp, sooner or later. The army chief said India has many options which also includes a surgical strike.
General Rawat said in an interview to Hindustan Times that, “Pakistan thinks it is fighting a war that is paying them dividends but we have several options, including surgical strike,”.
General Rawat also said that India will order a ceasefire when Pakistan will stop sending its terrorists in India. He said, “The Indian Army will honour the ceasefire and de-escalate tensions the day Pakistan stops sending terrorists across the line of control”.
Six Indian soldiers and a civilian was killed when terrorists of Jaish-e-Muhammad attacked the 36 Brigade headquarters of army at Sunjwan. Four terrorists were killed after the retaliatory firing by the Indian army. The terrorists will pay for their misadventure, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said.
She also said that there is enough evidence that the attack was originated from Pakistan. “Intelligence inputs indicate that these terrorists were being controlled by their handlers from across the border. Pakistan is expanding the arc of terror, resorting to ceasefire violations to assist infiltration. It will pay for this misadventure,” she had said.
According to the investigation by the army, the terrorists were hiding in various parts of Jammu and Kashmir since June last year. They were looking to carry out an attack.
Full freedom has been given to local commanders to retaliate with full force for any act of violence from Pakistani troops.
