Dhubri: Amidst the Opposition seeking details of the death toll in the airstrike, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday stated that the number of terrorists killed in the airstrike would be known either by ‘today or tomorrow’. Mocking Opposition leaders further, Singh, while speaking at a rally in Assam’s Dhubri said, “If my Congress friends feel that the numbers should be informed to then go, count and ask people there. Politics should not be done only to form a government, but it should be rather used to build the country.”
“Kitne mare, kitne mare?” (how many died?) Should our Air Force go and count the bodies after the attack– 1,2, 3, 4, 5…? What is this joke?” he asked, adding, “India’s respected and authentic National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO) surveillance system had confirmed that 300 mobile phones were active in that region when IAF jets had dropped bombs. Now, will you not believe the NTRO also? ”
Earlier on Monday, technical surveillance carried out by the NTRO (The National Technical Research Organisation) confirmed that around 300 active mobile connections were found in the facility at the JeM’s Balakot camp hours before the February 26 IAF air strike.
As per reports, a number of active mobile phones gave a clear picture of the total number of inmates housed at the terror camps when it was completely decimated by 12 Mirage-2000 fighter jets of IAF rained bombs.
