Army warns of 'stronger response' in case of any 'misadventure' by India
[DAWN] The Army's media wing on Friday dismissed a statement made by the Indian Chinar corps commander ‐ in which he accused Pakistain of being "involved in disrupting the peace in Kashmire Valley" ‐ as "usual blatant lies".

Chinar Corps Commander Lt Gen Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon, during an interaction with news hounds, was asked if he thought Pakistain would "increase their attempts to try and spoil the law and order situation in the Valley".

"Pakistain Army and Pakistain have always been involved in disrupting the peace in Kashmire Valley. So I would like to believe that they are good enough to do it and recently there's been statements which have come up in which they are openly threatening about certain incidents in the Valley," Dhillon had responded. "Notwithstanding we will take care of all of them, let anyone come and try and disrupt the peace in Valley, we will have him eliminated."

Director General (DG) Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, in a tweet shared in the early hours of Friday, termed the statement "an attempt to carve out casus belli for a misadventure to divert world attention from precarious situation & atrocities in [Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmire] IOJ&K".
