Mr Parrikar said that both sides committed mistakes frequently since there was no demarcation and they returned after senior military officers took up the matter with their counterparts. Responding to a question on beheading Indian soldiers by Pakistani troops in 2010, he said that the NDA was not in power then and would retaliate immediately without any hesitation if such incidents were repeated now.
He said that security forces had neutralised 50 infiltrators in the recent past, besides the four infiltrators neutralized on Thursday. Mr Parrikar asserted that the NDA government was committed to bringing back black money but absence of bipartisan agreements with several countries across the globe was affecting the progress. He added that officials were visiting these country to enter into agreements for mutual cooperation to overcome the problem.
