New Delhi: Retired Colonel VN Thapar, the father of Kargil martyr Captain Vijayant Thapar, on Thursday congratulated the Indian Army for carrying out surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control.
Talking to a news channel, Colonel (retired) Vijendra Thapar said that coincidentally, today is the birthday of his wife. “There could be no better present by the Indian Army than the operation”.
Col VN Thapar is the proud father of Captain Vijayant Thapar, who was leading a Rajputana Rifles regiment when he laid down his life on June 29, 1999, during the Kargil War. He was only 22 years old.
Talking to the channel, Colonel Thapar said that as a professional, he was so proud and happy by the operation conducted by the Indian Army.
He further slammed Pakistan for denying the strikes and warned that if Islamabad continued with its antics, it will pay a heavy price.
Eleven days after terrorists killed 18 Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir, Indian Special Forces targeted "some terrorist teams" positioned at launch pads on the Line of Control (LoC) yesterday, the military announced today.
Pakistan has denied any surgical strike by India but admitted to the death of two soldiers in cross-LoC firing by Indian troops.
