Pak plants landmines on Indian side: Antony
New Delhi, Mar 11 : Defence Minister AK Antony on Monday said Pakistan plants landmines on the Indian side from time-to-time.
"Intelligence reports indicate that from time to time Pakistan undertakes offensive actions planting mines on Indian side to cause casualties to our troops. In the recent past it has come to notice that Pakistani elements planted mines on 24-26th November, 2012 in Krishna Ghati Sector of Pooch Distt., Jammu," Antony said in a written reply in Lok Sabha.
"There have been instances of ceasefire violations along the Line of Control. However, no specific inputs are available of Pakistan firing from behind their civil areas," he said.
All ceasefire violations are appropriately retaliated/protested through the established mechanism of Hotline, Flag Meetings and Director Generals of Military Operations Talks, said the minister.
