“We have the desired capability to reply to such blatant act of violence in a manner as deemed appropriate by us. We reserve the right to respond to any act of the adversary at the time and place of our own choosing,” he added.

“Total recoveries during the Uri operation include four AK rifles, four grenade launchers, four under barrel grenade launchers. Recoveries also include 39 under barrel grenade launcher grenades, five hand grenades, two radio sets, two global positioning systems, two map sheets, two metric sheets which they use when they move from one place to another as guidance points were also recovered,” Lieutenant General Singh said.
“Meanwhile, a large quantity of food and medicine packets, having markings of Pakistan,” he added.
Lieutenant General Singh yesterday said that the four terrorists, who attacked the military base in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri, belonged to Pakistan’s banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who had called an emergency meeting in Delhi, had pointed a finger directly at Pakistan, saying it is a ‘terrorist state’ and should be isolated while BJP leader Ram Madhav said days of strategic restraint are over and suggested that ‘for one tooth, the complete jaw’ should be the policy after the attack.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday chaired a high-level meeting attended by top ministers and other officials over terror attack in Uri.
