Lieutenant General RR Nimbhorkar (retd) who was part of the 2016 ‘surgical strikes’ against Pakistan said on Friday that the Indian Army was well prepared to tackle terrorism being unleashed by Pakistan.

“India of today is not the India of 1962 and today the Indian military has high quality equipment and weapons to thwart enemy designs, although war is a distant possibility,” the retired defence officer said. He was speaking at a media interaction organised by the Pune Union of Working Journalists on the occasion of the third anniversary of the surgical strikes.

In September 2016, troops from the Indian Army Army crossed the line of control and destroyed militant camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir in retaliation to a militant attack on the army at Uri on September 18 that left 19 soldiers dead.
