" On Jan 8, 2013, Pakistani soldiers entered Indian territory in Krishna Ghati sector of the border and killed two Indian soldiers. Indian officials said both bodies were mutilated, and one decapitated."
New Delhi, Aug 1 - India's response to any aggression from Pakistan will be more than adequate, newly appointed army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag said here Friday.

My focus will be my soldiers... to enhance the preparedness and the effectiveness of the Indian Army. I will ensure that our soldiers are motivated, they are comfortable, competently trained and are provided with latest weapons and equipment, Suhag, who Thursday took over as the new chief of the 1.3 million strong Indian Army, told reporters.

Welfare of serving soldiers and ex-servicemen is an issue which is very close to my heart, he added.

Reacting to outgoing army chief General Bikram Singh's statement that India Army gave a befitting reply to Pakistan after an Indian soldier was beheaded along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, Suhag said that if a similar incident occurred, the Indian Army's response will be more than adequate in future.

On Jan 8, 2013, Pakistani soldiers entered Indian territory in Krishna Ghati sector of the border and killed two Indian soldiers. Indian officials said both bodies were mutilated, and one decapitated.

Two other soldiers were injured in the incident that triggered nationwide fury.
