GUWAHATI, March 6 - The Government of India has adopted a tough stand against terrorism and made it clear that no one would be allowed to go scot free after killing Indian citizens. Meanwhile, the Government has also provided details of the whereabouts of United Liberation Front of Asom (Independent) commander-in-chief Paresh Baruah to China requesting the Government of that country to take action against him.
Highly placed sources in the Government of India told The Assam Tribune that the Government has taken a decision to hit back at any terrorist group, which targets Indian citizens. �Even if a terrorist hides in a foreign country after killing Indian citizens, he will not be safe. India has already carried out three surgical strikes, one in Pakistan, one in Pakistan occupied Kashmir and one in Myanmar and there is no reason why more such strikes cannot be carried out. Every terrorist organization must now understand that they are not safe by sitting outside India,� sources asserted.
Sources also admitted that the recent air strike at the base of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) was cleared �at the highest level� of the Government of India. However, though there have been instances of firings along the Line of Control between India and Pakistan, the Government of India is not apprehending a war with Pakistan at this moment. Sources pointed out that Pakistan is on the back foot on the issue as the world opinion is in favour of India.
Meanwhile, though China has signed an agreement of mutual cooperation to deal with terrorism, sources admitted that several senior leaders of militant groups of India are still in Yunan province of China. However, they are living in clandestine manner and the militants have not set up camps in China as was done by terrorist groups in Pakistan.
Sources revealed that the Government of India submitted details of the whereabouts of Paresh Baruah to the Government of China, but no action has yet been taken. �The Government of India has definite information that Baruah is in China but the Government of that country has been denying the fact. A few times Chinese authorities reported back to India that they checked the locations given to them and could not find Baruah,� sources added.
