New Delhi:  The military operations at Pathankot airbase are over. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today addressed the media.

Here are the highlights of his speech:
 
  • In this operation 6 terrorists have been neutralised. Two of those bodies are burnt badly. DNA confirmation will have to be done to double check.
  • Combing operations are still on and may continue till tomorrow.
  • Once combing operations are over I will request them (defence personnel) to take you (mediapersons) around.
  • Congratulate security forces as they've done excellent job of containing these highly motivated terrorists. I salute them.
  • I have practically visited all the spots where the gun battle took place.
  • 40-50 kg of ammunition have been found on them (terrorists).
  • There are some indications that some of the material is made in Pakistan.
  • Let the NIA do its investigation.
  • I see some gaps in the operations.But I don't think we compromised on security.
  • This is a huge campus. It takes some time to guard such a huge complex.
  • The martyrs of Pathankot operations are being declared battle casualties. Their families will get the benefits given to war casualties.
  • All defence bases are now being audited from security angle.
