No link between Army ops and targeted terror killings: GOC | India News – Times of India

SRINAGAR: The general officer commanding (GOC) of the Army‘s Srinagar-based 15 Corps on Tuesday refused to link any current counter-terrorism operation involving the armed forces with the recent civilian killings in Srinagar and elsewhere. Lt Gen D P Pandey said all such operations were purely based on “human intelligence” about terrorist presence and plans.
The GOC urged both security forces and the people of J&K to be conscious about maintaining communal harmony while going after the terrorists responsible for the latest round of attacks in which Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs and other minority communities have been the prime targets.
On infiltration attempts by terrorists from Pakistan, Lt Gen Pandey said, “The Army is alert and ready to foil any infiltration attempt along the LoC. Terrorists operating in the hinterland will be killed with the help of inputs from the people of J&K,” he said, paying tributes to the bravery of the five Army personnel killed in action at Dera Ki Gali on the Poonch-Rajouri border on Monday.
The GOC ruled out the need for deployment of additional forces anywhere in Jammu and Kashmir.
