A day after a jawan was killed in firing by Pakistani troops, defence minister Manohar Parrikar said on Monday the Indian Army was giving a befitting reply to such ceasefire violations.

“Ceasefire violations have taken place in hundreds for the last five-six years...Check out the figures. The only difference is that if they do it now, we give a befitting reply,” he said.

An Indian Army jawan was killed on Saturday as Pakistani troops violated ceasefire twice along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

Parrikar had earlier equated the Indian Army to ‘Hanuman’ and made a reference to the Ramayana in which the monkey God crossed an ocean in a single stride after he was reminded about his extraordinary powers by Jamwant.
