Pakistan will pay for its “misadventure” and India reserved the right to respond at a “time of its choosing”, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Monday, while blaming Islamabad for the terrorist attack at the Indian Army’s Sunjuwan military camp in Jammu. After a visit to the Army camp, Sitharaman also asserted that Islamabad was expanding its “arc of terror” to areas south of the Pir Panjal Range in the Jammu region. The defence minister added that Rs 14.87 billion (Rs 1,487 crore) has been allocated to enhance security at military installations.
A group of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists had struck the Sunjuwan military camp in the wee hours on Saturday, killing six people, including five soldiers. Three terrorists were also gunned down. However, despite her strong words, the defence minister refused to “set a timeline” for when Pakistan would “pay for its misadventure”.
