Nagpur, May 12:- Dubbing the steady stream of cease fire violations, infiltrations and supporting the stone pelting in the valley as a ‘sign of weakness’ by Pakistan, Minister of State (MoS) for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir on Friday said the Defence Ministry is ready to give appropriate response to Islamabad on all counts.
“Pakistan killed Ummer Fayaz and it is very saddening indeed. Our agency is working on this and the Defence Ministry is also ready to give appropriate response to Pakistan,” Ahir told ANI.
Earlier, Ahir had asserted that India’s patience must not be viewed as its weakness, adding that the government will come to a conclusion on ways to stop repeated cease fire violations by Pakistan.
“We are not weak, we are working with patience. We do not want to hurt any civilian. Our army is working well. The government will soon take a decision in connection with the ceasefire violations by Pakistan, “Ahir said.
A woman was killed and her husband was injured in the ceasefire violation. Pakistani troops reportedly fired 120 mm mortars early morning in the area.
