'More aggressive anti-terror operations likely in future'
As the well-planned and surgical strike against terror camps across the India-Myanamar border sent a clear message that New Delhi will not tolerate the scourge, highly placed sources said Wednesday that more such operations could be mounted in future if the situation warrants.
 
"More such attacks may take place if there are intelligence inputs of a threat (of the kind of attack May 4 in Manipur that claimed the lives of 18 Indian Army soldiers and injured many more). The forces are always ready for such operations," a senior officer told IANS, on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the media.
 
According to sources, elements of 21 Para (SF) of the Parachute Regiment that carried out the strike on Tuesday did not suffer any losses but caused "significant casualties" among the terrorists.
 
Officially, the army has not released figures for militants killed in the attack but these are estimated to be between 15 and 25.
 
Sources said the camps that were attacked were a few kilometers inside Myanmar border, but refusing to name the exact location.
 
"The camps were a few kilometers inside the Myanmar border," the sources told IANS.
 
The paratroopers were flown to the target in the indigenous Dhruv advanced light helicopters.
 
The Additional Director General of Military Operations, Maj. Gen. Ranbir Singh had said on Tuesday that the Myanmarese authorities were taken into confidence ahead of the attack.

Police suspect racket behind Tomar's 'fake' degree: Bassi
A day after former Delhi law minister Jitender Singh Tomar was arrested in a case of an alleged forged degree, Delhi Police chief B.S. Bassi on Wednesday said that the police would probe if it was a racket.
 
Finding out those behind the forgery of documents was the "most important" aspect of the case involving Tomar, Bassi told media persons here.
 
"Who made them (documents)? Was it done by him (Tomar) or were these procured?" the police officer asked.
 
Bassi pointed out that if the documents were procured, it was important to identify the persons behind it. 
 
"Since when was the racket functioning? Who else, besides Tomar, was provided such documents?" he said.
 
Bassi said that earlier experience indicated that those involved in such rackets provide forged documents to many people. 
 
Police would seek to identify all those involved, and also persons who were given such documents.
 
The police commissioner said that such malpractices damaged the educational system and police would reach to the bottom of the matter.
 
Tomar, arrested by Delhi Police on Tuesday, is currently in four-day police remand. He resigned after his arrest.
