New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday issued a stern warning to Pakistan that Indian Army will give a “befitting reply” in case of ceasefire violation.
"Our Army will give a befitting reply to Pakistan if that country violates ceasefire... Kashmir is an integral part of India," Singh said while replying to queries from reporters.
Asked about the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Russia and the decision of the Pakistani authorities not to petition in court for 26/11 mastermind Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi's voice sample, Rajnath said, “Modiji ne haath nahi failaya tha lekin unka dono desh mein dosti ka prayatna tha (Modi did not plead but had only tried to foster friendly relations between the two countries).”
Two Border Security Force (BSF) jawans had lost their lives in the ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LoC) since last week.
Defence Secretary G Mohan Kumar also visited the Badamibagh Headquarters of the Army and was briefed by General-officer-Commanding (GoC) of Army's 15 Corps, Lt Gen Subrata Saha.
After taking stock of situation, Kumar then called on Governor NN Vohra at the Raj Bhavan.
While one jawan was killed in the ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops on July 5, another died in a similar incident in same sector on July 9.
