According to the Army, the intruders were wearing combat dresses like Pakistani regulars and were carrying a cache of warlike items with Pakistani markings. Some were also seen in Border Security Force (BSF) and old pattern IA dresses. From the recovery, it was estimated that they intended to carry out a gruesome attack on the Indian Army.

The Indian Army officials said, “We will ask Pakistan to take back the mortal remains of deceased likely Pakistani soldiers since Pakistan did provide full covering fire support to these intruders.”

It further said that the Indian troops had conducted prolonged search operations in thick jungles and difficult terrain conditions to ascertain the situation, which had confirmed elimination of two likely Pakistani soldiers and resulted in the recovery of a large cache of warlike items.

For the uninitiated, the BAT has been active in not just targetting Indian posts but extending support to terrorists from terror launchpads in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. The Indian Army has, time and again, blunted their attempts and remains alert against any possible infiltration bids from across the LoC.

On October 14, just a few days after India celebrated the second anniversary of the surgical strike across the LoC, Pakistan warned of 10 surgical strikes in response to a single such attack.

Major General Asif Ghafoor, the spokesperson of the military’s Inter-Services Public Relations, reportedly said, “If India dares to launch a surgical strike inside Pakistan, it will face 10 surgical strikes in response.” Ghafoor further said, “Those who think of any misadventure against us should have no doubt in their minds on Pakistan’s capabilities.”

Earlier in the month of October this year, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh blamed Pakistan for the continuous terror incidents in the state of Jammu and Kashmir and said that the country has continuously been “promoting terrorism and sending terrorists in India”.
