Appreciating the commendable response by Indian security forces to the terrorist attack on the Border Security Force (BSF) camp in Baramulla late Sunday night, BSF Inspector General Vikas Chandra on Monday said the country has a “determined enemy but the Indian security forces are even more determined to stop them”.
“We have a determined enemy, who wants to make the situation worst, but we are even more determined to stop them in their attempts,” Chandra told ANI.
Chandra said compass and wire cutters were seized from the place the terrorist were firing from, which indicates that their intention was to enter the campus which was retaliated by our forces.
Inspector General BSF, Punjab Frontier, Anil Paliwal earlier on Monday said an alert has been sounded on the border in the wake of the Baramulla attack and the following ceasefire violation in Poonch, assuring that the situation is under control.
Meanwhile, National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the current situation at the Line of Control (LoC).
Also, Pakistan violated ceasefire in Shahpur along the LoC in Poonch, Jammu and Kashmir on Monday. Heavy mortar shelling and firings were reported from the Pakistani side in Poonch.
Earlier, Pakistan targeted Indian posts along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Akhnoor tehsil late Sunday evening. Pakistan has stepped up cross-border firing after the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
