No let up in operations against militants in Kashmir: Indian army chief

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Operations against militants in Kashmir will continue, Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat asserted on Tuesday adding that while it was up to the “neighbouring country” as to how it treats militant organisations but India will continue to raise the issue.

“Operations in Kashmir are going on continuously and there is an improvement in the situation in the Valley. Such operations will go on,” Rawat told reporters on the sidelines of a ceremony at Suratgarh military station in Jaipur.

The government forces in Jammu and Kashmir have claimed to have killed over 200 militants this year, the highest number since 2010.

In an apparent reference to Pakistan, Rawat said that how the “neighbouring country” deals with militant organisation is their matter “but we will keep raising this”.

“We do not want that such organisations are promoted,” he said.
