According to latest news from Jammu and Kashmir after the killing of two Indian soldiers, one of whom was beheaded, by Pakistani Army, Indian Army Chief Bikram Singh on Monday said it a gruesome and an unpardonable act and asserted that his forces “reserve the right to retaliate”.

In a press conference, Army Chief said, “What they (Pakistan) have done is against the ethics of soldiering. My heart goes out to the families of soldiers who were killed and whose bodies were mutilated. It’s a gruesome and unpardonable act. Beheading of soldiers is not acceptable.”

Further, the Army Chief said that the Indian Army will obey all the rules of ceasefire as long as it is maintained.

Bikram Singh said, “We will uphold the ceasefire as long as it is maintained. We reserve the right to retaliate at the time and place of our choosing.”

Backing up the Indian soldiers on the Line of Control [LoC], Mr. Singh said, “Commanders on LoC are doing a great job. I expect my commanders on the LoC to be aggressive. They must understand that the Army hierarchy is behind them.”
