NEW DELHI: Indian Air Chief Marshal, Arup Raha, was addressing the Indian media on the current protocol situation established on the India-Pakistan border, when a journalist inquired regarding the provision of details related to the surgical strike . The Indian ACM Arup Raha responded by stating that, ‘Evidence regarding the Surgical strikes by Indian forces will not be made public.’

Main opposition leader hailing from the Aam Aadmi Party Chairman, Arvind Kejrival, has demanded the BJP led Government to provide the ‘necessary’ evidences to establish the authencity of the Indian Government’s narrative. Pakistan has repeatedly denied the Indian stance that surgical strikes were carried out in the aftermath of Uri attack. DG-ISPR of Pakistan Army, Lt.Gen. Asim Saleem Bajwa stated that Cross-border firing occurred, only.

UN has also rejected the Indian claim to surgical strike . No specific areas were mentioned where the surgical strikes engaged the alleged ‘terrorist launch pads’ nor the operational details matched the ground realities. The locals of the area saw no movement of Indian land troops or helicopters contrary to earlier, where the Indian DG-MO claimed the intrusion of Indian Army into Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

The Indian official stance has changed from cross-border firing to surgical strikes to pre-emptive strike.
