Indian Defence Minister says, Pakistan will pay for Kashmir Army Camp ‘Misadventure’
Indian Defence Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday (February 12) said Pakistan will pay for the Kashmir ‘misadventure’ which killed five soldiers and a civilian after militants attacked an army camp in India‘s northern Jammu city.
Addressing a news conference in Jammu Sitharaman stressed that the attackers were being controlled from across the border and India had a right to respond adequately and at a time that was appropriate.
At least five soldiers and a civilian were killed on Saturday (February 10) after militants stormed an Indian army camp in the country’s northern Jammu and Kashmir state in the wee hours of the day.As per local media reports, four militants were also killed the men wore fatigues and carried assault rifles, a large amount of ammunition and hand grenades.
A detailed report after proper scrutinisation of the evidences will be furnished soon, added Sitharaman.
Sitharaman paid a visit to the injured in a military hospital and met State Chief of Jammu and Kashmir state Mehbooba Mufti where they discussed the security situation in the strife-torn province post the army camp attack.
India accuses Pakistan of training and arming militants and helping them infiltrate across the Line of Control that divides the Kashmir region. Pakistan denies the allegations.The South Asian neighbours have fought two of their three wars since independence in 1947 over Muslim-majority Kashmir, which they both claim in full but rule in part.
