Rajouri, Aug 19: Warning Pakistan that it was making a "serious mistake" by violating ceasefire along Line of Control (LoC), a senior Army officer on Monday said a befitting reply would be given with "full force" against Border Action Team (BAT) attacks.
"You (Pakistan) are making a serious mistake (with regard to
ceasefire violations and BAT attacks) -- do not do it," General
Officer Commanding (GOC) 25 Infantry Div, Maj General V P Singh
told reporters here.
He was answering a volley of questions as to what strong message he wants to convey to Pakistan with regard to increase in ceasefire violations, cross border firing and BAT attacks on forward Indian posts along LoC in Poonch. "...it is not going to affect, deter us, or weaken our resolve," he said.
Regarding Army's strategy as to whether India wants to take revenge for BAT attacks engineered by Pakistan, Gen Singh said, "As far as BAT action is concerned, we are absolutely aware what kind of response it is going to be -- that response will be delivered."
"It will be delivered in our own time and at the place of our own choice and with full force, that you shall see," he said. "It is a military matter -- as and when the response is delivered, you will see," he said, adding Indian troops will give "a befitting reply to Pakistan with full force".
