“You (Pakistan) are making a serious mistake (with regard to ceasefire violations and BAT attacks)– do not do it,” General Officer Commanding (GOC) 25 Infantry Div, Major General V P Singh told reporters here.

He was replying to volley of questions about what strong message he wants to convey to Pakistan with regard to increase in ceasefire violations, cross border firing and Border Action Team(BAT) attack on forward Indian posts along LoC in Poonch.

India has blamed BAT, which is a mix of Pakistani special forces personnel and terrorists, for the brutal killing of its two soldiers in January, one of whom was beheaded, and killing of its five personnel along Line of Control in Poonch sector.

“…what you are putting across– it is not going to affect, deter us or weaken our resolve,” Gen Singh said.

Regarding Army’s strategy in the wake of the BAT attacks engineered by Pakistan, Gen Singh said “as far as BAT action is concerned, we are absolutely aware what kind of response it is going to get– that response will be delivered”.

“It will be delivered in our own time and at the place of our own choosing and with full force, that you shall see.

“It is a military matter– as and when the response is delivered– you will see”, he said, adding “the response would be delivered– we will select our time and place to give a befitting reply to Pakistan with full force,” he said.
