The Indian Army claims that it is aware of all terror launch pads across the Line of Control which have been setup along the India-Pakistan border. The India Army, according to a report in the Indian media, claims that it knows the exact location and number of terrorists in all the 12 location of the terror camps in Pakistan. The question is – can the India Army strike the terror launch pads in Pakistan, as Indian General – Bipin Rawat claimed the need of another surgical strike?

An official in the Indian Ministry of Defence confirmed the news, adding that intelligence agencies are regularly monitoring the movement of terrorists. “We know how many terrorists are on an average present in each launch pad. These terrorists are supported and trained by the Pakistan Army, the official added.
The terror launch pads are located in places such as Machal and Uri that are common points where the Indian Army encounters terrorists attempting to infiltrate the border. Last week, Pakistani troops mutilated the body of Indian Border Security Force (BSF) soldier along the international border in Jammu which has further hurt the relations between India and Pakistan.
The Head Constable Narender Kumar was part of the BSF patrol which had been sent to the site to clear a thick undergrowth of elephant grass. He went missing in the morning when Pakistan’s forces opened unprovoked fire. His mutilated bullet-riddled body was recovered by a search party after nine hours. The throat had been cut open and the eye hollowed out. The brutal killing elicited a sharp reaction from within the armed forces, and soldiers are calling on the Centre to snap ties with Pakistan.
Surgical Strike 2
Is Indian Army hinting towards another surgical strike on Pakistan? As terrorism continues to plague Delhi, Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat ‘wants another surgical strike’ on ‘terror launch pads’ across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan.
The two neighbouring countries hit a new low after India recently called off a meeting between the foreign ministers of both nations due to the “brutal killings of security personnel by Pakistan-based entities and the recent release of twenty stamps by Pakistan glorifying terrorism”.
Rawat said time was ripe for such action in an exclusive interview to Aaj Tak. “I believe there is a need for one more action (surgical strike). But I will not disclose how we intend to go about it,” Rawat said in the interview broadcast on Monday.
