Stop Aiding And Abetting Terror Groups, Army Dgmo Tells Pakistan
With ceasefire violations along the line of control already crossing 750 this year, India told Pakistan on Friday that it was only retaliating due to its continuing support to aid and abet cross-border terrorism.
This came after the Pakistan DGMO, Major General Sahir Shamshad Mirza, called up his Indian counterpart Lt-General Anil Chauhan on Friday evening alleging that Indian security forces had resorted to "unprovoked firing and calibre escalation" along the LoC. To which "Lt-Gen Chauhan emphatically stated that retaliatory firing by Indian troops has only been carried out in response to unabated support given by Pakistan Army to armed terrorists who infiltrate across the border and target Indian Army posts with heavy calibre weapons," said an Indian officer. He impressed upon the Pak DGMO that the support to terrorism by Pakistan Army is unacceptable and the Indian Army will continue to take all retaliatory measures," he added.
