The Indian operation that led to the loss of paratroopers and border guards raised questions

20

The Indian Defense Ministry reports a clash on the border with Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir. The report said that a clash broke out against the backdrop of a joint operation deployed by the army and the border service to curb the penetration of militants into Indian territory. In New Delhi, Islamabad is sponsoring attacks by representatives of illegal armed groups.


According to the latest information, five militants were neutralized as a result of the battle. At the same time, the Indian military suffered similar losses - five people. Among the dead Indian soldiers - two paratroopers. Their names are called: Amit Kumar and Bal Krishan. The airborne detachment, into which they entered, fell under heavy fire and suffered losses by the dead and wounded.

The representative of the Indian law enforcement agency, Colonel Rajesh Kalia, said that the soldiers died as real heroes.

At the same time, eyewitnesses note that, in fact, the paratroopers did not even have a chance to engage in a full-fledged battle with the militants. Their unit was shelled immediately after landing in the sector of Kerana (northern part of Kashmir). According to some reports, Indian border guards rescued the unit from complete defeat, which in the end also suffered losses.

It is noted that there were difficulties with the evacuation of the wounded. In addition to the fact that the evacuation had to be carried out practically in the conditions of the ongoing skirmish, the weather in the area of ​​operation deteriorated and heavy snowfall began.

Colonel Kalia:

Snowfall made evacuation of the wounded very difficult. As a result, two more wounded soldiers later died.

For this operation of the Indian security forces, questions arise in India itself. One of them is related to reconnaissance. After all, if the paratroopers came under heavy fire, as stated, it means that the militants managed to prepare for the arrival of the Indian detachment by organizing an ambush. If there was no ambush, it turns out that the Indian fighters received orders to attack “on the forehead,” which also raised questions.

      Даже если завёлся предатель, "разведку местности" никто не отменял, согласитесь.

        The Indians again plunged into margarine. Once again you are convinced that it is not a bad weapon, but bad brains and clumsy handles.

    In New Delhi, Islamabad is sponsoring attacks by representatives of illegal armed groups.

    it’s not clear from the article whether Islamabad sponsors the militants, or whether the militants sponsor Islamabad.

      Если бы боевики спонсировали Исламбад, то было бы написано "Исламабад спонсируется вылазками представителей воору...." в данной же формулировке все однозначно. После таких вопросов у меня всегда возникает подозрение что для спрашивающего русский язык является не родным, а выученным, как иностранный.

        If you had read my comment not at 15:29, but at 13:17 you would have noticed that this is exactly how the article was written. It’s just that during this time, the Author corrected a small piece of paper in the article and at the same time gave the footnote from his article in my comment.
        And note - I, pointing to an eyepiece, did not doubt how much the author yes Russian is not native, but learned as a foreign language. yes
        All the best to you hi

    India is a unique country. It surprisingly combines the ambitions of a superpower and the possibilities of a midget.

      Well, I don’t agree about the possibilities of a midget. The question is gouging and inability to take advantage of the situation. By the way, let's remember who helped our pants in our military-industrial complex in the 90s, and often now. Although the situation has changed and the Indians are focusing on their own production. of opportunities.

        On the issue of supporting the military-industrial complex, what is their choice? T-90 and Su-30 are much cheaper and no worse than European and American counterparts. The Indians would take off their pants if they ordered 200 F-15 and 1.500 abrams.

          Well, at the expense of 200 F-15, you famously gave, but the impoverished Egypt was able to buy 500 Abrams from the USA and open their production at home ....

      I'm more impressed with Pakistan.
      Manages to crap on two fronts - and in the north, in Afghanistan, and in the south, on the border with India.
      In the eighties, we poisoned our lives in Afghanistan, now the Indians are yepenit.
      He raised the Taliban, educated entire generations of terrorists, gave shelter to Bin Laden ..
      And the world community is suffering. Nuclear power, damn it. am

        Until the 90s, Pakistan was VERY supported by the United States, and then China, WELL friends with them, against India. Without outside support, a second Afghanistan would have been.

    I won’t be surprised if the border guards drenched the landing force in conditions of insufficient visibility and, of course, in view of the lack of coordination of actions.

    Маленький такой вопрос: "А почему вначале бесконтактно по хлопцам не отработали? Дронами, артиллерией, авиацией, минометами?"

      The article also says:
      a clash broke out against the backdrop of a deployed army and border service joint operation to curb the penetration of militants into Indian territory

      Those. during the clash there was close fire contact between the Indian border guards and the militants, the Indian tactical group of the Indian Armed Forces who came to the rescue fell under the fire of the militants (the terrain was probably shot long ago by the militants) ....
      and then, as stated in the article
      in the area of ​​operation the weather turned bad, heavy snow began.
      which all the more did not contribute to the use of the Indian Armed Forces tactical and AA, however, it saved Indian soldiers from mortars of militants ....
      Among the Pakistani militants there are many former and active Pakistani troops, respectively, the Indians came under fire from fire support and cover groups ....
      five militants were neutralized as a result of the battle
      apparently people (militants of low qualification), whom the militants missed ahead of themselves, and the Indians did not miss the head post of the militants ahead, immediately started shooting ...
      In short, it is clear that Pakistani militants, unlike the Indians, knew about the operation of the Indian Armed Forces and about bad weather ....
