Taranjit Singh

, who is posted as the deputy chief of

integrated defence staff

(

operations

) in the defence ministry, are being systematically spread from across the border.
“Pakistan, in a desperate attempt, is trying to create a divide within the Indian Army. We categorically reject such malicious attempts to defame our institution,” said Army spokesperson Colonel Aman Anand.
“The Indian Army is a secular organisation. All officers and soldiers serve the nation with pride irrespective of their religion, caste, creed or gender,” he added.
