Army Chief General Bipin Rawat in Chennai on Monday said Pakistan has reactivated the Balakot terror camp. He also mentioned that about 500 infiltrators were waiting to sneak into India.
The response to the terror camp getting functional again may go beyond India’s earlier response by an airstrike in February. He told reporters here at the Officers Training Academy in the Tamil Nadu capital Chennai. “We will keep the enemy guessing and this time. Why repeat (Balakot?). We may go beyond that,” Rawat added.
But, Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesperson Muhammad Faisal has denied Balakot terror camp has reactivated. He calls it “completely baseless”. The allegation of “infiltration” from Pakistan reflects “a desperate attempt” of India to divert international attention from the “humanitarian crisis” in Jammu and Kashmir. He said, adding that New Delhi will not “mislead the world community through these diversionary tactics”.
