NEW DELHI: In the wake of the recent ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC), defence experts urged that it is time for India to take proactive action against Pakistan, rather than resort to retaliatory firing.

“There has been continuous firing along the LoC. Rather than resorting to retaliatory action, it is time to get offensive and take proactive action. At this point, the enemies are motivated to attack us, and this needs to be well-countered," defence expert Praful Bakshi told reporters here.

Stressing on the importance of improving the country's intelligence forces, Bakshi said the attack must be initiated from the forefront by gathering information regarding the exact location or base camps of these operations.

"We must try to occupy important positions along the border," he added.

Adding to the flurry of ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the LoC, a soldier succumbed to his injuries on Saturday in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district.

35-year old Lance Naik Mohammed Naseer, a native of Poonch, was caught in the round of unprovoked firing and shelling by the Pakistani troops on the Indian forward posts. The braveheart, who was taken to a hospital in the vicinity, succumbed to his injuries.

To this regard, defence expert PK Sehgal, while condemning the incident assured that India will give a befitting reply to the same.

"My condolences are with the kin of the brave heart. The nation stands by them," he added.

Ceasefire violations along the LoC have been an everyday occurrence in the last few months. Prior to the aforementioned firing, Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked firing in Poonch and Nowgamas well, in the previous week.

Reportedly, 23 cease fire violations have occurred so far in June alone.

On June 29, two Indian Army jawans were injured when the Pakistani troops initiated firing along the LOC in Poonch.

On June 26, the Pakistani Army fired small arms and shelled mortars along the LoC in the Bhimbher Gali sector of Rajouri.
