Here’s how the brazen attack unfolded
  • 5:30 am Militants breach the fence of a strategic military base in north Kashmir’s Uri, attack barracks and tents where soldiers were sleeping. One militant reportedly blows himself up
  • Till 5.45 am Three militants killed in ensuing firefight
  • 7.30 am Gun battle continues. Terrorists use incendiary ammunition and small arms, setting ablaze tents and temporary shelters at the camp
  • 9 am Firing ceases. No shots heard
  • 10:52 am Army tweets four terrorists killed, 17 soldiers attain martyrdom

What next? The options before India

Covert strike on terror camps in Pakistanoccupied Kashmir. But India might run the risk of a full-fledged war with a nuclear state

Move forces to the border in an eyeball-to-eyeball deployment, close Indian skies to Pak flights. Move may not be of any help in long run

Isolate Pak internationally. India has pursued this line for decades without success. Now that terrorism has emerged as a global threat, India has more diplomatic leverage

Engage the civilian leadership in Pak. This, however, goes against New Delhi’s stated line that terror and talks can’t go together

Engage the Pakistani army, which controls the levers of power, through back channels. But their interest in peace is suspect

Scale up the offensive over Balochistan. Make Pak pay for its interference in J&K. But this might strengthen anti-India elements in Pak

After 18 soldiers were killed in an ambush in Manipur last year, Indian forces went across the border into Myanmar and eliminated them. This option was mooted against Pakistan-backed militants but never exercised. Pakistan is a different kettle of fish to Myanmar, though.
