Troops Alert on Border: Army

Asserting that troops are alert along the borders with Pakistan, a senior army officer today said, no untoward incident will be allowed to happen along the Line of Control (LoC).

"Our boys are alert and we will not allow any untoward incident to happen (along the LoC)," General Officer Commanding (GOC), Cross Swords Division, Maj Gen Rustam Patnaik told PTI on the sidelines of an army eye camp organised under Operation Sadbhavna, here.

Patnaik was replying to questions on the situation along the borderline in the backdrop of beheading of two jawans by Pak troops in the Poonch sector in the first week of January.

Maj Gen Patnaik said, confidence building measures were working (between the two sides of LoC) and they are carrying routine activities.

Replying to another question about the posture and body language of Pakistani troops after the incident, the officer said: "We cannot see their body language, we can only see them through binoculars."
