The Chief of the Army Staff, Gen­eral Bipin Rawat, on Satur­day dis­missed as “in­di­vid­ual per­cep­tion” the re­marks made by former North­ern Army Com­man­der, Lieu­tenant-Gen­eral D.S. Hooda (re­tired), on the sur­gi­cal strikes car­ried out by In­dian Army com­man­dos in Pak­istan-oc­cu­pied Kash­mir in 2016.

Asked about the re­marks, Gen. Rawat said: “These are in­di­vid­ual per­son’s per­cep­tion. So let’s not com­ment on them.”

The Army chief noted that Lt. Gen Hooda (retd) was “one of the main per­sons in­volved in the con­duct of these op­er­a­tions. So, I re­spect his words very much.”
