Pullout from Kashmir not possible now, says army


With “Pakistan still supporting terrorists and running training camps”, the Indian Army thinks demilitari­sation in Jammu and Kashmir was not the “right option” at this time.

The general-officer-commanding in chief (GOC in C) of the army's Northern Command, Lieutenant General H.S. Panag, told newsperson­s in Reasi yesterday: “Profession­ally speaking, demilitari­sation is not the right option at this time and it is not possible.”

He said it was a crucial period for the state as infiltrati­on of militants from Pakistan was still on.
