Is Indian Minister hinting that Indian Army may have conducted yet another strike in Pakistan?
NEW DELHI - India’s Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has hinted that Indian Army may have conducted another surgical strike against Pakistan
He has claimed that ‘something big’ has happened against Pakistan in the past two days, but he won’t disclose it yet.
The Indian home minister made the remarks at a small Muzaffarnagar gathering. He made the statement in the context of the killing of a Border Security Force (BSF) soldier along the Line of Control (LoC) allegedly by Pakistan troops, reported *India Today link* .
Rajnath Singh indicated that Indian forces ‘may have hit Pakistani’ targets across the border to avenge the ‘killing of a BSF soldier’.
“Something has happened, I won’t disclose it now. Whatever has happened, has happened for the good. Trust me, something big has happened two-three days ago. And you will also see what happens in future,” Rajnath said referring to the killing of Narendra Singh.
“I have told the BSF jawans, don’t fire the first bullet, as they are our neighbours. But if they fire the first one, don’t count the number of bullets you fire back,” Rajnath said.
BSF sources “confirmed” inflicting “significant” loss of life on the Pakistani side, the Indian publication claimed. The alleged killing prompted an alert along the Line of Control and the international border with the Indian army chief delivering a pugnacious statement calling for ‘another surgical strike’.
Earlier, Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat had called for another surgical strike against “terrorists”, adding that the situation at the border with Pakistan won’t improve unless the Pakistan government can control its military and its intelligence service.
