“We don’t communalise martyrs, those making statements don’t know the Army well,” said Lieutenant General Devraj Anbu, GOC Northern Command.

Briefing about the recent attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, Lt General Anbu said the ‘enemy’ is attacking softer targets as they are failing at the borders.

General Officer Commander-in-Chief, Northern Command, Lieutenant General Devraj Anbu said, anyone who picks up an arm and is against the state, is a terrorist and the Army will deal with them.

He however expressed concern over youngsters joining militant outfits.”We need to address this trend. In 2017, we focused on leadership and eliminated it.
