In a recent development on the border with Pakistan, Lieutenant General Devraj Anbu, exhibiting India's firm stand against border dispute and repeated ceasefire violation, warned the neighbouring country of strict actions against them if they continue this behaviour.

Addressing a Press Conference on Thursday, the General Officer Commander-in-Chief (GOC) of the Northern Command said, “The surgical strike was a point we wanted to drive home across that the Line of Control (LoC) is not a line that cannot be breached. When we want to, we will be able to breach it [LoC], go across and strike when we need.”

He said that although launch pads and terrorist camps have increased in Kashmir, NIA's actions have led a substantial decrease in stone-pelting in the valley.

“Large number of terrorist camps and launch pads exist across the south and the north of Pir Panjal and they have not decreased. Our counterpart is very strong in Jammu and there is not even a single militant active in the Jammu province,” he added.

Talking about border disputes and ceasefire violations, Anbu said that there are lots of attempts to infiltrate into the Kashmir valley and Jammu, but most are unsuccessful and we are firmly dealing with it.

He also assured that the situation in Leh was also under control and that the dispute has been resolved.

 “There is a hotline present to discuss in regard with East Ladakh and meetings are taking place, so there will not be a Doklam type situation," he said.

He also announced that the soldiers who passed the border to launch a surgical strike on terror launch pads in POK have been awarded with Surya Chakra and Sena Medal.
