Army threatens to avenge killings

We Have Definite Plans To Retaliate: Gen Parnaik

GK NEWS NETWORK

Jammu, Jan 15: The Indian Army has a "definite plan" to avenge the killing of two soldiers by Pakistani troops, Lt Gen KT Parnaik declared on Tuesday.
 "We have definite plans to retaliate but not in haste and anger, and at the time and place of our own choice," the head of the Northern Command told the media.
 He was speaking at an investiture ceremony at Akhnoor, 40 km west of Jammu. Gen. Parnaik said there was a lot of anger among army units after the Pakistani troops killed two Indian soldiers on Jan 8 in Jammu and Kashmir, beheading one of them and mutilating the body of another.
 The raiders, who Indian officials say were from the Pakistan Army, took away the head of the soldier. "But I pacified them (Indian soldiers)," he said.
 Gen Parnaik said that even after the brigadier-level flag meeting Monday at Chakan da Bagh in Poonch district, Pakistan fired at three Indian forward posts in Mendhar sector.
 The Indian Army retaliated. He maintained that Indian troops did not cross the border in Uri sector on Jan 6 - the day Pakistan claimed that one of its soldiers was killed - nor thereafter despite the high provocation.
 "Pakistan was given all the evidence of (their) laying mines on the Indian side of the LoC, killing of Indian soldiers and mutilation of their bodies but they were in a denial mode," Gen. Parnaik said.
 According to Gen Parnaik, there were 43 militant launching pads in Pakistan Administered Kashmir and 400-500 militants were prepared to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir.
‘Big presence of Chinese in PaK’
 Asserting that there is a large presence of Chinese troops and workers in Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK), Gen Parnaik said that China would not like to "interfere" in border conflict between India and Pakistan.
 "I do not think China will be stakeholder in India and Pakistan on the issue of border skirmishes-- it has not interfered and will not do it," he said.
 "Siachen is a strategic location-- it is an important area which is under our occupation-- it is our area-- on its east side Akasi Chin and Korakuram ranges fall and on western side there is Pakistan area of Gilgit-Baltistan," he said.
 The Army commander claimed that Pakistan had number of times tried to enter into negotiation over it but whenever there are issues of agreement, the country does not comply with it.
 "There can be no talks if they do not agree the line (of control) - where till we occupy, the land should be made permanent," he said. With inputs from
