New Delhi [India], October 30 (ANI): In a hot line interaction between Indian Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lieutenant General A. K. Bhatt and his Pakistani counterpart on Monday, India stood its ground regarding Pakistan sponsored terrorism in the Kashmir Valley, in response to Pakistan's allegations of India violating ceasefire along the LoC.
According to an official statement, Indian DGMO Bhatt emphatically responded that "the retaliatory firing by Indian troops has only been carried out in response to unabated support given by Pakistan Army to terrorists who infiltrate across the border and target Indian army posts with heavy caliber weapons."
Bhatt countercharged Pakistan of employing civilians at forward posts, alleging that they have been repeatedly used for gaining information of Indian troops' locations and providing guides to the terrorists while crossing the border.
Bhatt assured India's resolve towards maintaining peace and tranquility at the border, provided Pakistan stops aiding infiltration at the border, and reiterated that Indian troops will continue to take retaliatory measures against provocative acts of aggression from Pakistan's side in future. (ANI)
