A day after Army Chief General Bipin Rawat’s comments that nation should be prepared for a two-front war, Lt General Devraj Anbu, General Officer Commander-in-Chief, on Thursday said Indian Army will breach Line of Control (LoC) and launch strike if the situation arises in future.

Making a clear position on border dispute, the General Officer Commander-in-Chief said if Pakistan does not stop terror activities from its soil, similar action could be taken in such situation.

 “When we want to, we will be able to breach it (LoC), go across and strike when we need. Subtle message we wanted to convey,” Anbu said.

 Anbu said terrorists have made several attempts but most were not successful. He asserted that there was a steep decline in infiltration.

 The General Officer Commander-in-Chief said large number of terrorist camps and launch pads are still exist across south and north of Pir Panjal, and they have not decreased.
