India is targeting the farms and residences of retired Pakistan army, and Pakistan Rangers officers along the Indian border. As per a report in The Times of India, Pakistan has given land to these officers near the border to help them in operations against India.
The report said that the BSF is using small, medium and area weapons for offensive which has been named as ‘Operation Arjun’. The operation is said to have caused heavy damage on the Pakistani side and 11 civilians have been killed in the same.
Pakistan Rangers’ Punjab DG Maj Gen Azgar Naveed Hayat Khan has reached out to BSF director KK Sharma over the issue.
However, Sharma reportedly told Khan that there are chances of retaliation as Lt Col Irfan, commanding officer of 12 Chenab Rangers, tends to act in a provocative manner.
‘Operation Arjun’ had to be started by the BSF after the Pakistani Rangers kept firing on the Indian soil. The decision was then taken to restructure the operations along the western border.
