On Wednesday, the Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat voiced concern over the security of vital installations in hinterland. Warning of a possible Uri-like attack, the Army chief has highlighted the need for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance on the western and northern borders of the country.

The Army chief said that security agencies obtained reports of plans of terrorist attacks from the other side of the border. According to OneIndia, the General said:

“Major requirement as of now is Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, to keep eye on adversaries on western and northern borders. We are also looking at Electronic Warfare (EW) system to keep an eye not just on borders but in hinterland also. We are getting reports of Uri-like attacks well in depth.”

Expressing his views on the appointment of new interlocutor in Kashmir, General Rawat said:

“Government has appointed him, let him work, it will not affect Army’s operations.”

On September 18 last year, a brazen attack was carried out by four heavily armed militants on the Army camp in Uri. The attack had left 19 Indian soldiers dead and several others injured. The attack was described as one of the deadliest terror strikes on Indian security forces in recent years.

Later, on the intervening night of September 28 and 29, a surgical strike was carried out by the Indian Army across the Line of Control in Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir. The strike intended to send a strong message to Pakistan after its cross-border terror activities had increased.

About a month ago, India’s Army chief had warned Pakistan to stop promoting terrorism across the border emphasizing that India, too, has many retaliatory options like the last year’s “surgical strike”.
