Army given ‘free hand’ to deal with Pakistan

Srinagar: The Indian Army has been given a ”free hand” to deal with Pakistan after two Indian soldiers were allegedly beheaded and another injured by a Pakistani ‘Border Action Team’ (BAT) that sneaked into Indian territory under cover of heavy shelling in the Krishna Ghati sector in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.
The Indian Army has been given a free hand to respond to what the Indian government termed ‘barbaric’ and ‘highly cowardly’ act by Pakistan’s BAT, reported Times of India on Tuesday quoting sources.
The Army sources claimed that the ambush conducted over 200 metres inside the Indian territory came less than 24 hours after Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the LoC on Sunday.
In response to the incident, the Indian Government sources said that the Indian Army has been given a free hand to respond to the fresh beheading, with Defence Minister Arun Jaitley holding that the sacrifice of the two Indian men in uniform would not go in vain.
