Amidst raging political controversy over the surgical strikes, the Indian Army has reportedly given multiple videos and graphic evidence of its strikes across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK) in the wee hours of Thursday last, and left it to the government take a final call on whether they should be made public.
The video evidence of the Army operation was announced just as Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a Cabinet Committee on Security meeting in New Delhi to discuss whether the details of the strikes should be revealed or not since the Opposition parties have been mounting pressure for their release.
The meeting was briefed about the situation on the LoC and the International Border as well as the hinterland, sources said.
According to a newspaper report published today confirmed that the Army operation indeed took place by citing eyewitness across from across the LoC.
In the night of September 28-29, Indian Army commandos had crossed over to the PoK and killed nearly 50 terrorists and destroyed at least launch pads. The strikes happened 10 days after Pakistan-based terrorists stormed an Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri sector and killed 20 Indian soldiers.
Pakistan has repeatedly denied that the Indian Army crossed over to the territory controlled by it and even took a team of international journalists in a failed attempt to show the proof of its denial.
