          Good job guys , no one on our side should be killed , get a light combat helicopter and pulverize the house in which the terrorists are hiding. The time for testing and trial is over now all testing equipment and telemetry equipment must be brought to Kashmir and completely close chandipur testing range and Rajasthan firing range do live testing on these terrorists and on the Pakistani forces. All equipment that kills large number of Pakistani army men must be inducted.
