Indian Army Chief Did not Repl on Surgial Strike Question


Days after Indian soldiers crossed the Line of Control to target terrorists in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir, Arup Raha, the chief of the air force, said India’s response to the Uri attack in which 19 soldiers were killed isn’t over.

“Things are still live, it would not be right for me give a perspective now,” Air Chief Marshal Raha told reporters today. The Air Chief refused to take any question on the surgical strikes which took place late Wednesday night.

Special forces with elite para commandos crossed the Line of Control to target seven staging areas where terrorists were prepping to infiltrate India and attack major cities, the army revealed hours after the cross-border action ended. Sources said Indian soldiers travelled between 500 metres and 2 kms from the de facto border to inflict vast damage on the terrorist launch pads.

India has also mounted a diplomatic offensive to isolate Pakistan globally while moving to review crucial water-sharing and trade agreements that would place Islamabad under pressure.
