Army Chief Bipin Rawat warns of Uri like terror attack


New Delhi, Oct 25: Expressing concern about the security of vital installations in hinterland, Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat on Wednesday cautioned of a Uri-like terror attack in the upcoming days.

Security of installations in hinterland is becoming a cause for concern. We are getting reports of Uri like attacks well in depth, Rawat was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Apart from this he said army is looking at Electronic Warfare (EW) system to keep an eye not just on borders but in hinterland also.

The army chief, while stressing on the need for advancement of the Indian armed forces, also called for height- level surveillance and reconnaissance on the borders for chalking the movement of adversaries.

Major requirement as of now is Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance,to keep eye on adversaries on western and northern borders, he asserted.

Earlier, Rawat had warned that the Army will conduct another surgical strike, if required.

In a stern message to militants cross border, he said “The surgical strike was carried out to send a message and if our adversaries do not understand, it will be repeated. The terrorists across the border are sitting ready. On this side of the border, we are also ready for them. They will come here, we will receive them and we will bury them two feet below the ground.”

On September 18, last year four terrorists attacked an Army base in Uri claiming the deaths of 19 soldiers and injuring several others.

Following this, India army conducted a surgical strike on September 28-29 night in 2016 on terror launch pads across the Line of Control in Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir (POK).
