New Delhi: In a major announcement Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh and Vikas Swarup told media that India conducted surgical strikes last night across LoC and significant casualties were caused to the terrorists. He also said that it is a matter of serious concern that there has been many infiltration bids by terrorists at LoC.

 He also added that the motive of this operation was to hit out at the terrorists who were planning to infiltrate into our territory. “India has shared with Pakistan Army details of surgical strikes and we expect them to cooperate in the fight against terror,” he added. There were no Indian causalities during surgical strikes that were carried out. “We have recovered items including GPS which have Pakistani markings.

Captured terrorists hailing from PoK or Pakistan have confessed to their training in Pakistan or in the Pakistan-controlled region,” Singh said. President, Vice President, Former PM Manmohan Singh, J&K Governor, J&K CM Mehbooba mufti were also briefed on the surgical strikes by the Indian Army. However, Pakistan rejected India’s claim of surgical strikes across LoC.

 Meanwhile, Pakistan, in a statement issued has said: At least two Army men were killed as Indian and Pakistani troops exchanged fire over the Line of Control in “Azad Jammu and Kashmir”. The exchange of fire began at 2:30am, ISPR said, and continued till 8:00am.

“Pakistani troops befittingly responded to Indian unprovoked firing on the LoC in Bhimber, Hotspring Kel and Lipa sectors,” the statement said. The press conference was jointly conducted by the Ministry of External Affairs and the Ministry of Defence.

Earlier on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) to discuss the situation at the Line of Control. Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj, Manohar Parrikar and other senior ministers were present at the meeting.

 India had repeatedly warned Pakistan not to allow its territory to be used for terrorist activities. Besides, India had called for an international diplomatic boycott of Pakistan as it shielded terrorists on its land. At the United Nations General Assembly, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said Pakistan was a terror state and it needs to rein in terror elements.
