Promise of calm after DGMOs talk


The phone conversation happened two days after Indian Army Chief General Bikram Singh made it clear that while the recent spate of violations and the brutal killing of the two soldiers was unacceptable, there would be no move to escalate it beyond the tactical level. The Army Chief had said that he viewed the situation as a localised matter and retaliation would also take place at the same level.

As things stand, both India and Pakistan have lost two soldiers each in the Mendhar sector in a series of incidents that started with the beheading of an Indian soldier on January 8. Both Pakistani casualties have been in the exchange of firing with the 13 Raj Rif regiment, whose soldier's body had been beheaded. In addition, a Pakistani soldier was killed in crossborder fire in the Uri sector on January 6.
