New Delhi, Feb 02: Something is churning in Italy these days and India has every reason to be worried. Back in the year 2016, the Enforcement Directorate had signalled to the authorities in Italy about a Help Services and it was suspected that it was linked to the ISI, Pakistan.
The National Investigation Agency has sent a Letter Rogatory (LR) to Pakistan, seeking its response on seizures made following the Uri attack. On September 18 2016, terrorists of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba had attacked an Army camp and killed 19 soldiers. The NIA which has made little progress in the case has sent a formal request to Pakistan to cooperate with the probe.
It would be difficult for India to show restraint, if Pakistan carried out another 26/11 styled attack, a Brussels based think tank, International Crisis Group has said. While analysing India’s response to the Uri attack following which surgical strikes were conducted, the report says that it would be difficult for India to show restraint in the event of another attack like 26/11.
However, what one must note here is that for General Sharif the hatred for India is due to a personal reason. He has been nurturing a grudge against India for long and when he took over as the army chief of Paksitan, Indian agencies had said that he will be looking to trouble India in many ways.
It was a major victory for India after the army carried out a successful surgical strike in which 38 terrorists and two Pakistan army soldiers were killed.
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.
