The IAF has been asked to resubmit the Court-of-inquiry and its findings while the Army has been ordered to point the lapses of the officers in the probe on Uri and Nagrota army bases.

 

Former Vice-Chief of the Indian Air Force, Air Marshal P K Barbora commented,

Very rarely does the government send such advice.



Air Marshal Barbora explained that the court-of-inquiry and its findings are generally accepted by the government. However, in a new milestone, the Defence Ministry has asked both the IAF and the Army to pinpoint the officers and the lapses in security of such areas.

On January 2, 2016, the Pathankot air base was attacked by JeM terrorists. On September 18, 2016, the 12th Infantry Brigrade at Uri was attacked early in the morning by the terrorists. Soon, on November 29, 2016, Nagrota cantonment was attacked by terrorists.

The officer commanding the Pathankot air base, Air Commondore A S Dhamoon, was hastily removed from his command and was posted to Delhi. Similarly, Brigadier Somashekhar, the officer commanding Uri brigade was removed to “control the damage”.  Both the officers were then cleared for higher ranks, in spite of such failures during their command.

The government, however, now wants to ensure that the people responsible for such massive breaches in security should be held responsible.
