Army Chief General Bipin Rawat

Chief of Army Staff General Bipin Rawat on Monday asserted that surgical strike conducted by India along the Line of Control (LoC) will be repeated if adversary does not mend its ways.

While addressing amasses at a book launch event in the national capital, General Rawat said that the terrorists on the other side of the LoC are ready to infiltrate in India and so is the Indian Army to strike them down.

"Surgical strike was conducted to send a message and if adversaries do not understand, it will be repeated," General Rawat said.

"We are ready to receive the terrorists that come this side of the LoC and will send them to their right place, their graves," he added.

India carried out surgical strike on September 29 2016, eleven days after Pakistan carried out Uri attack in Jammu and Kashmir.

Apart from this, Pakistan has been continuously violating ceasefire along the LoC.
