According to Indian media reports, Bipin Rawat said that the Pak Army is “suffering three to four times the number of casualties compared to us”.
He further said that these long and bloody tit-for-tat fire assaults across the border, with even light artillery guns, heavy mortars and anti-tank guided missiles often coming into play from both the sides, are not going to ebb anytime soon.
