India inflicted significant casualties on terrorists in LoC surgical strikes'

 

New Delhi, Sep 29: India caused "significant casualties" on terrorists and those who support them during surgical strikes across the India-Pakistan border late on Wednesday, the Indian Army has said.

"India cannot allow terrorists to operate across the LoC (Line of Control) and strike with impunity," Director General Military Operations Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh told a hurriedly called press briefing here, soon after a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security.

Despite our persistent urging to Pak to not allow territory under its control to not be used for terrorist activities nothing was done. It has been a matter of serious concern that there have been many infiltration bids by terrorists at LoC, added the DGMO.

"I had spoken to the Pakistan DGMO and we expect the Pakistan Army to cooperate with us to eliminate the threat of terror," he said," adding: "The strikes were carried out based on specific and credible information," he said, adding The cabinet meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
