On September 29, India carried out ‘surgical strikes’ on terror launch pads across the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, inflicting “significant casualties” on terrorists and those who are trying to support them.

The announcement by the DGMO came soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that attackers on an Indian army camp in Uri in Kashmir will not go “unpunished” and that the sacrifice of 19 jawans will not go in vain.
“Based on very credible and specific information which we received yesterday that some terrorist teams had positioned themselves at launch pads along the Line of Control with an aim to carry out infiltration and terrorist strikes in Jammu & Kashmir and in various other metros in our country, the Indian army conducted surgical strikes last night at these launch pads,” Lt. Gen. Singh told reporters during which external affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup was also present.
The strikes were carried out across the LoC.
He passed out of the Indian Military Academy, Dehradun, on December 13, 1980, and was commissioned in 9 Dogra, which he went on to command.
After his father’s death at an early age, he was brought up by his uncle, Colonel Manmohan Singh (retd). According to him, the general was always a topper be it at school or in military courses.
He has also served on the Faculty of Studies at the Army War College, Mhow, after doing the higher command course.
Reports suggest that the special case for Lt Gen Ranbir was cleared by the top Indian leadership.
