As shelling continued on the international border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday, Union home minister Rajnath Singh said the forces have a free hand to respond as they deem fit if the neighbouring country continued the offensive.

Speaking at the Border Security Force's (BSF) 16th investiture ceremony function here, Singh said, "We have a neighbour that does not want to correct itself.

"Yet, we must not fire the first bullet at our neighbour. But if it opens fire, you (forces) have to decide what action to take. Then no one will ask why you did so."  IANS
