A day after four army personnel lost their lives in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the Rajouri sector of Jammu and Kashmir, Vice Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Sarath Chand on Monday assured that India would keep giving a befitting reply.
Speaking to media, Lt Gen. Chand said, “Pakistan army supports the terrorist in infiltration. We have been responding appropriately and retaliating in equal measure.
We will continue with our process of giving a befitting reply. Action will speak for itself.”
