What happened to the other two who were wounded? They managed to escape?
This was a Paki SSG border action team (BAT) operation thru and thru.
This part to me shows how ruthlessly efficient the PA is compared to the IA. They respond to a border provocation very cleanly, efficiently and with brutal precision regardless of its effect on the so called national interests. And to me it appears that the brutality was deliberate and designed to shock India. In this goal they have succeeded, haven't they?
a) I still am scratching my head on how they managed to lay such a precision ambush? Did they use UAVs or some other intelligence source?
b) How did they even know about the 4 man Indian team? Did they just stumble into them or knew exactly what the Indian patrol patterns were?
c) Why, after just having a border issue in the last few days, were we still sending out small 4 man teams to begin with? Didn't we expect a counter-response?
