Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat on Wednesday warned of a Uri-like terror attack and called for better intelligence.
“Security of installations in the hinterland is becoming a cause for concern. We are getting reports of Uri-like terror attacks well in depth,” Rawat was quoted as saying by ANI.
“Major requirement as of now is Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, to keep eye on adversaries on western and northern borders,” Rawat said.
The Army chief also added that they were also looking at Electronic Warfare (EW) system to keep an eye not just on borders but in hinterland also.
Last month, Rawat had asserted that surgical strike conducted by India along the Line of Control (LoC) will be repeated if the adversary does not mend its ways.
“Surgical strike was conducted to send a message and if adversaries do not understand, it will be repeated,” he said.
In the worst attack on the Army in many years, heavily armed militants from Pakistan-based JeM stormed an army base in Uri in Kashmir killing 17 jawans. India carried out a surgical strike on September 29, 2016, eleven days after Pakistan carried out Uri attack in Jammu and Kashmir.
