President of All India Anti Terrorist Forum, Mahendra Singh Bitta on Sunday said an Anti Terrorist Military Code be implemented to curb terrorism in the country.

"For curbing terrorism in India a national policy is needed. An Anti Terrorist Military Code should be enforced nationally which may help control terror acts," Bitta, who was in Aurangabad to attend a programme organized to mark 10th anniversary of Kargil Vijay Divas, told media persons.

India should adopt the policy on the lines of Sri Lanka and implement a bullet for a bullet policy, he said.

In the context of Pakistan, he said the neighbouring country is preparing for creating Kargil like situation again and has pressed 1100 bunkers and tanks for the purpose in PoK.

"We haven't taken any stringent action even after the terror attacks on Kargil, Mumbai, and Parliament and serial bomb blasts in the country which have affected the economy of the Nation," he said.

The leaders of Pakistan have accepted their country's involvement in the terror attacks in India, but our government is yet playing the role of a mute spectator, he said.

Bitta emphasised the need for strict vigilance at the border areas of Rajasthan, Punjab, West Bengal, Nepal and Kashmir.
