India goes for emergency purchase of sniper rifles for troops deployed along the LOC

https://m.timesofindia.com/india/arm...w/67490375.cms

Pakistani snipers are raking a deadly death toll of Indian troops along the LOC . Amazingly the Indians had no sniper rifles for troops deployed along the LOC until now . Also while Pakistani snipers go to a proper sniper training school , India has no such training facility .

Until now sniper rifles were available only for Indian special forces which are not deployed along LOC . Troops deployed along LOC had only old Russian Dragunov rifles which are not really sniper rifles . Finally an emergency purchase of sniper rifles is being done for troops on the LOC . But training in sniping wise the Indian army remains behind the Pakistan army .
