Udhampur, Nov 16: The Army’s Northern Command chief, Lt Gen Ranbir Singh, said Friday Pakistan shall be “punished” if it carries out activities detrimental to India and asserted that befitting replies were given to the neighbouring nation for violating ceasefire.
The Army commander’s comments come in the wake of fatalities in sniping incidents along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Jammu region in the last few days.
“The message is very clear for the troops on the ground that should Pakistan not stop from carrying out activities, which are detrimental to our national interest along the LoC, they (Pakistan) shall be punished accordingly,” Lt Gen Singh told PTI on the sidelines of a function here to felicitate teachers of Army Goodwill schools.
Three Army soldiers and a porter were killed and four others were injured in sniping incidents along the LoC in Jammu’s Rajouri and Poonch district last week.
“There has been regular sniping incidents from an area along the LoC and we have regularly (lodged) protests with our Pakistani counterparts on their sniping activities. If they have carried out any ceasefire violation, we have given them a befitting reply,” Singh said.
The lieutenant general also said that “as far as infiltration attempts from across the LoC are concerned, Pakistan has continued with its efforts to give impetus to infiltration.”
The Indian Army is deployed all along the LoC and “we have been able to thwart all attempts by Pakistan to push in militants toward our side”, he said, adding the security situation in the state’s hinterland is stable, but remains fragile.
Goodwill schools were started in 1998 and currently, the Northern Command runs 45 such schools under Project Sadbhavana.
Twenty-four teachers received awards from Lt Gen Singh for their innovative skills in teaching.
The project provides education to 15,000 students and employs 1,000 teaching and non-teaching staff.

Chairman SHRC, Justice (Retd) Bilal Nazki, issued the order in response to a petition filed by the International Forum for Justice and Human Rights Muhammad, Ahsan Untoo.
The petition urges the commission to inspect the “shoddy procedures” adopted by the private schools in giving admissions.
“The poor section people are deprived of all the opportunities for improving their fate and are left with no option other than to admit in local schools,” reads the petition, urging the commission to see whether the downtrodden sections of the society were provided their “due share in the admissions as per the Supreme Court guidelines”.
The petitioner also seeks transparency in the schools’ admission procedure.
“There are reports that brokers manage admission against hefty sums,” the petition reads.
The petition claims that the schools have been charging parents for heating arrangements but not keeping the facility available to the students.
Private Secretary SHRC, Khazir Mohammad Shah, told The Kashmir Monitor that following the petition, notice would be sent to the Directorate and all leading private schools of the valley on Monday.
