Reacting to it, Kapil was quoted by Pinkvilla saying, “We may have a difference in opinion about how to deal with it but like every Indian, I am hurt and angry with this cowardly act of terrorism. The biggest tribute we can give to our Martyrs is to stand united with our Armed forces and give a befitting reply to the terrorists and their handlers sitting in Pakistan.”
Earlier, addressing a press conference, Foreign Secretary Vijay K Gokhale said the action was specifically targeted at the terrorist camp located on a hilltop. The camp, he said, was at Balakot, about 195 km from Islamabad and over 40 km from Muzaffarabad, in the province Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
