Family of soldier SK Vidyarthi, who was killed in the Uri attack of September 18, hailed the surgical strikes conducted by Indian Army along the LoC in Pakistan on Thursday.

“Really happy that Indian Army took initiative and conducted these strikes,” Vidyarthi’s daughter Aarti told reporters. “This (surgical strike) is very good, but we would have been happier had it been done before,” said Vidyarthi’s wife. The Uri martyr’s family lives in Gaya district of Bihar.

The Indian Army on Thursday organised surgical strikes targeting seven terror launch pads across the LoC overnight in which heliborne and ground forces were used. Addressing a press conference, DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said India inflicted “significant casualties” on terrorists and those who are trying to support them.

This comes just days after one of the worst terrorist attacks on the Indian Army where 19 army jawans were killed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri when a four-man fidayeen squad attacked the rear office of an Indian Army infantry installation. The attackers are believed to have come from Pakistan. Following the attack, India has resorted to several diplomatic measures and vowed to internationally isolate Pakistan.

      Modi like the soldiers (who died) families come from similar humble background. They know each other's pain better.
