Recovery of M4 carbine from militant shows Pak's role: Indian Army

The recovery of M4 carbine from one of the gunned down terrorists at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir is yet another evidence of Pakistan's support to terror activities, Indian Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat said on Tuesday.

"This only shows they (terrorists) receive support from across the border," Gen Rawat told reporters when asked to comment on the recovery of the gun used by the Pakistan Army, from the terrorists in Pulwama. Three terrorists were killed by security agencies in an operation on Monday.

In a press conference in Srinagar, Maj Gen B S Raju, General officer Commanding of the Victor Force and Muneer Khan, Inspector General of Police said the US-made carbine, found in the militant hideout, was being used by Nato forces as well as by Special Forces of the Pakistan Army.

One of the three militants was identified as Talha Rasheed, the nephew of Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar. "It doesn't matter if he is Masood Azhar's nephew or anyone else, we aim at neutralising all terrorists no matter where they belong to," Gen Rawat said.

Asked to comment on the Chinese objections to Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's trip to Arunachal Pradesh, Gen Rawat said, "Defence Minister visits troops in forward areas to meet them in person, to understand their various issues which might be engulfing them. Visits by the Defence Minister are always a source of motivation. She has to visit those areas where our troops are deployed. After all it is ministry of defence which is providing support to us."
