English newspaper The Hindu has revealed that to teach a lesson to Pakistani Army in July 2011, Indian Army crossed the LOC in ginger and carried out “Operation Ginger”.
It was carried out to give a befitting reply to the action of Pak Army in which 6 Indian Army Soldiers were Marteryed. In response as tit for tat, The Indian Army had entered into PoK and 8 Pakistani soldiers were killed. The three were beheaded.
The Hindu newspaper claimed to have strong evidence of this Surgical Strike. The newspaper’s claim raises curiosity among public how present surgical strikes differs from 2011 surgical strikes (If happened).
