Though tracking a sniper may be technologically possible but it makes it harder in a terrain like LoC. But, there is no reply better than a retaliation. We do not have to use snipers in response to their snipers. We have other folks in sight too, if they kill one, we kill the ones in sight with a mo...

The fact is Nepal would be an average country in Africa. Per capita GDP, literacy, infant mortality. Only less industrialised. Bangladesh has twice the per capita income.
