JAMMU — Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday warned Pakistan that it will pay a price for the terror attack on an army camp in Jammu that left five soldiers and a civilian dead in a two-day gunfight.
“Pakistan will have to pay for this misadventure,” Sitharaman told reporters here.
“I wouldn’t certainly state a timeline (for action against Pakistan). But will say this, Pakistan will pay for this misadventure. I repeat, Pakistan will pay for it,” Ms Sitharaman said, triggering speculation about another possible strike against terror camps across the Line of Control, as happened after the 2016 terror attack on the army camp at Uri.
“The Ministry of Defence will stand by the Army. We have to work together with the Jammu and Kashmir government,” the minister said. — Agencies
