New Delhi: Indian army has given a green signal for the release of video footage of the surgical strikes carried out by the security forces along the Line of Control (LoC) on September 28, a report by The Economic Times said.

The Indian army has told the government that they can use the footage of the surgical strikes. However, the final decision rests with the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

Top army officers, speaking off record, told ET that the army is keen that India release evidence that will answer those alleging the strikes never happened.

The recommendations come amid Pakistan’s denial that surgical strikes didn’t happen.

Many Indian politicians have also questioned govt and asked for the “evidences” to prove that September 28 surgical strikes happened.

Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam on Tuesday had raised a doubt over the surgical strikes suggesting that it was fake.

"Every Indian wants surgical strikes against Pakistan but not a fake one to extract just political benefit by BJP. Politics over national interest(sic)," Mr Nirupam tweeted.
