Indian Army okay to release surgical strikes video footage

In the wake of the growing demand to release the video footage surgical strikes, the top army men have given a green signal and wants the government to use the footage as a "proof" to settle all doubts, said the sources.


On the other hand, Pakistan continues to claim that India did not conduct any surgical strikes on September 29.


The valour displayed by Indian soldiers to the entire world by the manner in which they carried out ' surgical strikes ' against terror launch pads across the Line of Control has made the country proud, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Sunday.


"The country as well as the whole world is aware of this (surgical strikes) the way our jawans displayed valour have made India proud," Singh told reporters here after inaugurating a 'smart toilet' constructed here under the Swachh Bharat Mission.


Responding to a query on doubts raised by Pakistan over the operation alleging that India has not released the footage of the operation, the Home Minister said, "Just wait and watch".


However, the final call to release the footage rests with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.


On Friday, Army had trashed media reports in Pakistan about Indian casualties during the operation in which about seven terror shelters across the Line of Control were targetted.


The Army had also said "black propaganda" was being carried out by some Pakistani TV channels showing "morphed" video clips depicting Indian Army casualties.
