Insurgency and intrusion are common in Indian territory by Pakistani army and militants. And every time they are restricted by the Indian Army at their best and killed them at LOC only, But sometimes, they enter into the territory and create horror situation.
It was 2001, when some of the Pakistani Soldiers enter into the Indian territory near LOC, but this time they were in no mood to fight with Indian Army, because they had already get defeated and retreated well by Indian Army, so by nature, they tried to kill innocent.
On these days, they started killing a particular tribe near LOC, Bakarwal People, who are also known as Gujjars of Kashmir. They were killed, beheaded and their head were taken back to Pakistan, there animals were also stolen by them. The scared people complained to Army and ask for help. 9 Para SF, took the charge and the Commanding Officer himself lead the company with 70 commandos.
The operation was kept secret and named Operation Apache, but it was so secret that even government do not know. That’s why this mission could not be found on official records.
What was done by 9 PARA SF:
A company of 70 Commandos lead by a Commanding Officer, enter the territory of Pakistan and attacked the Pakistani post, just few kilometers away from their Higher Post Army Center. They Killed many but the point to be concerned was, they beheaded them and take back 10 head as trophies. That attack was a lesson to Pakistani infiltrators that no more innocent killing would be tolerated.
