One killed in fresh Pak firing in J&K, India asks troops to retaliate strongly
NEW DELHI: India has ruled out any flag meeting with Pakistan until firing at the border stops, according to Times Now.
Indian forces have also been asked to retaliate strongly to every Pak provocation at the border, Times Now has reported quoting sources.
Meanwhile, India has turned the heat on Pakistan with massive retaliatory fire in response to ceasefire violations along the line of control (LoC) as well as the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir, leading to civilian casualties on both sides.
Intelligence agencies tracking reports in Pakistani media on Tuesday estimated that more than 15 Pakistani civilians had died in the firing by BSF soldiers, mainly in the Sialkot sector.
The offensive intent of the Indian security establishment was also evident during the weekly DGMO hotline talks on Tuesday, with the Indian Army warning its Pakistani counterpart that the response to any provocation would be "intense, immediate and more than adequate" in keeping with the directions issued by Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag.
