“Ceasefire violations have taken place in hundreds for the last five-six years…Check out the figures. The only difference is that if they do it now, we give a befitting reply,” he said.

An Indian Army jawan on Sunday was killed as Pakistani troops violated ceasefire twice along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

Parrikar had earlier equated the Indian Army to ‘Hanuman’ and made a reference to the Ramayana in which the monkey God crossed an ocean in a single stride after he was reminded about his extraordinary powers by Jamwant.
