"Our boys are alert and we will not allow any untoward incident to happen (along the
LoC)," General Officer Commanding (GOC), Cross Swords Division, Maj Gen Rustam Patnaik told
PTI on the sidelines of an army eye camp organised under Operation
Patnaik was replying to questions on the situation along the borderline in the backdrop of beheading of two jawans by Pak troops in the Poonch sector in the first week of January.
