New Delhi, Sep 12: The Indian Army primary concern before launching the surgical strikes were the dogs barking and attacking them. Hence to neutralise that, the Indian troops used leopard’s urine and faeces to get the much needed stealth inside the enemy territory former Nagrota Corps commander Lt Gen Rajendra Nimborkar said on Tuesday.
It has been one year since India carried out a surgical strike across the Line of Control and targeted Pakistan sponsored terrorist groups. The strikes were carried out on the intervening night of September 28-29 2016.
India carried out a successful strike across the Line of Control to avenge the Uri attack in which 19 soldiers of the Indian Army were martyred. While the surgical strikes hit Pakistan right at the heart, the return to the base by the heroes of the Indian Army was a tough one.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi swayed the audience in the United States on the first day of his two day visit. He interacted with the Indian diaspora in Washington DC’s suburb of Virginia on Sunday.
Terrorists across the border live in the constant fear that they may be targetted in another surgical strike. India carried out a surgical strike September 2016 following the Uri attack as a result of which the number of infiltrations and cease fire violations by Pakistan dropped.
However, there is proof to indicate that the strikes were indeed conducted and the number of casualties and violation along the Line of Control as well as the International Border have come down drastically.
Addressing a rally at Jaunpur, the PM said that it is not good and right to politicise national security.
Hafiz Saeed, who decided to term the Akhnoor terror attack a surgical strike against India, got many of his facts wrong. To begin with he stated that the mujahideens cleaned up 10 rooms, killed 30 soldiers and cleaned up the entire camp.
He called it ‘their version of a surgical strike’ although not once did he utter that it was his outfit, the Lashkar-e-Tayiba, which carried out the attack. He spoke about cleaning up 10 rooms, destroying the camp and killing 30. However, the fact of the matter is that three soldiers died after the terrorists set ablaze and shot at a camp.
New Delhi, Oct 8: They went, they destroyed and they returned. This is how the surgical strike by the Special Forces of the Indian army can be summed up. After the targets had been identified, the plan was to cross the Line of Control and destroy the targets.
The army has carried out a restricted operation and this is what is called paying back in the same coin, B K Pandey tells OneIndia.
