Kolkata, Aug 24 IANS | 1 month ago

In the wake of repeated ceasefire violations by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley Sunday said India has responded "adequately" to the "provocations".


"There has been a series of provocations for the last few days. Our armed forces are there at the LoC (Line of Control) and the BSF is there at the international border protecting both our territory and people," Jaitley told reporters on the sidelines of a programme in West Bengal's Murshidabad district.

"Whatever response is required to these provocations by Pakistan is being adequately taken by them," Jaitley said.

On Saturday, two people were killed and seven others injured in heavy firing by Pakistani forces on Border Security Force (BSF) posts on the international border in Jammu district.
