Pak owning ‘suicide bomber’ makes its intentions clear

NEW DELHI: Army Chief General V K Singh today said the “intentions and ways” of Pakistan Army have “become clear” with it owning up a ‘suicide bomber’, who died in India, as one of its soldiers on its website.

“I have nothing to say on what they (Pak Army) have put up on its website. But if it has (owned up), then it clearly shows what their intentions and ways are and what their next move will be,” Singh told reporters here on the sidelines of an Army function here.

Singh met with school children from Jammu and Kashmir, who came visiting Delhi as part of the Army’s ‘Op Sadhbhavana’ movement, to win the hearts of the people of Kashmir.

“All I can say is we have to be more alert and only then we can protect the people and our troops,” he said when asked what he thought of Pakistan Army sending ‘suicide bombers’ to India.

“We have tried our best (to prevent infiltration). We are trying to stop infiltration. We will be alert on all fronts,” he added.

Pakistan Army’s website named Zulfikar Ahmed as an ISI agent, who was on a suicide attack mission in India and had died in the city’s Ganga Ram Hospital on November 16, 2007.

The website www.pakistanarmy.gov.pk also claimed that Ahmed was a ‘Naik’ in the ‘Engineers’ arm of the Army and his formation was ‘Headquarters 30 Corps/Directorate General ISI’.

It had a few days ago listed the Army men who were killed in the war with India over their Kargil intrusions in 1999, thereby owning up that it had carried out the clandestine operation.
