New Delhi [India], Nov. 30 (ANI): Senior advocate K.T.S. Tulsi on Wednesday said that apart from rhetoric the government needs to speak to Pakistan to de-escalate tension along the Line of Control (LoC) and the International Border (IB).

"It's a very shocking incident, because it only shows that the attack on army units and army cantonments. Now, it is about 60 kilometre inside the Indian territory. How such daring attacks are taking place is a matter of concern, and, I think, apart from rhetoric, the government needs to speak with the neighbour and de-escalate the situation." Tulsi told ANI.

Tulsi's comment came a day after heavily-armed terrorists stormed an army base in Nagrota and killed seven soldiers.

The three terrorists were also killed in the stand-off which also involved a hostage-like situation with 12 soldiers, two ladies and two children being held captive.

Chief of Army Staff General Dalbir Singh is on his way to Nagrota to have an assessment of situation on the ground and will report back Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar. (ANI)
