Pakistan in shock after Indian Army's surgical strikes: Manohar Parrikar

New Delhi: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday warned Pakistan against taking India's silence as weakness, days after the Indian Army stunned Islamabad by conducting surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control.

Parrikar said Pakistan did not probe the matter as it is still in shock after surgical strikes.

If Pakistan continues with such conspiracies, we will give them a befitting reply again, added the defence minister.

 

The surgical strikes were carried out early Thursday on seven launch pads by the Indian Army which said it inflicted "significant casualties" on the terrorists and those who supported them.

 

The strikes came 11 days after the Uri terror attack on September 18, which killed 19 Indian soldiers. India has blamed Pakistan militants for the Uri attack.

 

A nationwide alert was issued on Friday after intelligence inputs on possible attacks by Pakistan-based terror groups in the country in retaliation to the Indian Army's surgical strikes.
