Accusing Pakistan of trying to destablise India by sending militants across the border, Home minister Rajnath Singh said security forces in Jammu and Kashmir have been asked not to fire first, but to retaliate without counting the bullets, if provoked.

“It (Pakistan) is our neighbour, so don't fire first. But if even one bullet comes from that side, then don’t take count of the bullets (fired in retaliation)," he said in his directive to the Armed forces.

"Pakistan is trying to destabilise us by sending militants. But I would like to compliment our army jawans, security forces and Jammu and Kashmir police. All three are acting in mutual coordination and are engaged in wiping out terrorists daily and are succeeding," he said.
