New Delhi: Minister of State (MoS) Defence Subhash Bhamre on Monday said that there is zero tolerance to terrorism.

Talking to media, Bhamre said that the Indian Army is trying to flush out terrorism from the Kashmir valley, "India has inherent role in ensuring security in the region. Our policy and determination is clear. There is zero tolerance to the terrorism and we are going to stop cross border infiltration of terrorists. Our army is after them and trying to flush out terrorist from the valley."

General Officer Commanding (GOC) of 15 Corps Commander Lieutenant General J.S. Sandhu said, "The local terrorists must realise that it is easy to call themselves a Mujahid.
