Kashmir Stone-Throwers Targeting Soldiers Are Like Terrorists: Rawat

New Delhi: Days after a soldier in south Kashmir’s Anantnag died after being targeted by stone-pelters, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Saturday, questioned why “shouldn’t people throwing stones be treated like terrorists”.
Speaking to the media in Delhi, after paying tribute to soldiers on 72nd Infantry Day, General Rawat said, “The jawan who lost his life after being attacked by stone-pelters was guarding a border roads team, which was constructing roads. And then we have some people saying don’t treat stone-pelters like over ground workers of terrorists.”
The Army chief warned that strict action will be taken “against stone-pelters for attacking soldiers”.
General Rawat accused Pakistan of supporting the stone-pelters’. Pakistan is trying to “stall development” in Jammu and Kashmir by “using terror to keep the pot boiling”, said General Rawat.
“Pakistan is fully aware that they can never succeed… terror is another way by them to keep the pot boiling. They want to stall development in Kashmir but the Indian state is strong enough to counter everything, and we are fully capable of carrying out different operations,” said the Army chief. (NDTV)
