New Delhi: Four soldiers including a captain, were killed in the firing by Pakistan, in the Rajouri district on the Line of Control (LoC). While there are angry reactions emerging from all around the country, the army has insisted that this aggression by Pakistan will be replied to. Pakistan will receive a reply by action and not by words, warned the Vice Chief of Army Staff (VCOAS) of the Indian army, Lieutenant General Sarath Chand.
Pakistan started firing on the army posts near the LoC around Sunday evening. While firing, Pakistan used anti-tank missiles along with rockets and heavy artillery it is said. Captain Kapil Kundu, Havaldar Roshan Lal, Ramavtar and Subham Singh were martyred in the attacks. Indian army replied to the Pakistan attack with a counter offensive. But, the Indian army has given clear indications that it will not stop short of avenging the death of the four martyrs.
Pakistan will get a solid reply from the Indian army and the Indian army will continue its action in the coming times, said Vice Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Sarath Chand. Indian army will reply Pakistan by action and not by words, warned the Vice Chief, Lieutenant General Sarath Chand. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has protested against the firing in stern words. At the same time, Rajnath Singh said that the Indian army has the capability of giving an apt reply to Pakistan and we have complete faith in the bravery and capability of the army.
Union Minister of State for Home, Hansraj Ahir said that this attack by Pakistan will not be tolerated, this will prove to be very costly for Pakistan. Since the last few months, the firing incidents on the Jammu-Kashmir border are on the rise and now the intensity of the attacks is increasing. It has been exposed many times that these have been Pakistan’s attempts for helping the terrorists to enter India. But, the Indian army has foiled these attempts.
Pakistan is making accusations against India for being responsible for the tension, in spite of its own inciting actions. There are reports that the Deputy High Commissioner to Pakistan, J.P. Singh has been summoned by Pakistan in connection with the Indian firing along the LoC. Pakistan, in the past too, has made such accusations against India.
