Given that the terrorists had not hit and infantry was being called up for perimeter security and technical area security, why use nsg? They aren't better equipped or experienced at hunting these rats in open areas than the sf guys no?
This is what we are good at. Wasting time on excessive "introspection". It would be better off if GOI was questioned on why the fight is not been taken to PA/ISI.
Instead we spend time arguing about who would be good at ops command.
There was no NSG combat casualities.No civilian casualities, no asset destruction.
It took 2-3 days to finish the ops. Who cares? Let them take 10 days. There is no birthday to attend.
How much better Para Sf would have done? Are there better men than Lt Col Nirijan in SF for bomb deposal? Would they have saved the DSC who just happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time?
