    @SHIV AROOR Welcome to the forum.

    What do you think of the recent incident(news) of a Pakistani retired Officer being kidnapped in Nepal, is there some back channel talks happening to bring back Mr. Jadhav in exchange for this guy or all there is nothing in it?

    And what do you think of the immediate change in Pakistan's attitude to provide Jadhav with all legal remedies before execution ?

    @SHIV AROOR

    Any ideas on IN medium ASW Helicopter purchase plans? Billion dollar ships are sailing without one.

    Looks like S-70B tender is expired.

    Have spent months speaking to the Special Forces while writing OPERATION JINNAH as well as a forthcoming non-fiction book that will be out in August. We have formidable special forces and training. There are definitely concerns in terms of tactical planning -- the Pathankot and Pampore attacks being cases in point. Courts of Inquiry have come out with pretty adverse observations on the counter-attacks in both cases, involving the SF. But we're in a period of flux as far as engaging our SF units is concerned, starting with the September 2016 raids in PoK. The hope is that tactical efficacy will follow with this new found political will.

    I don't trust a word Pakistan says -- not by its military or by its politicians. I'm sure back-channel communications always take place, but India is working to make a visible diplomatic effort to bring Jadhav back.

    S-70B deal is dead. The new SP policy will be taking into account the MRH/NMRH requirements. Don't hold your breath!

    Good point. We are, but belatedly and inadequately. With the focus on Digital India etc etc, hopefully that will change. Needs to change fast. Fully agree with you.

    Indian rubbed Pak's nose with respect to KBJ case @ ICJ.
    Now sudden change in Pak's stance a testimony to ever-increasing international pressure on Pakistan or it is something we don't know yet?

    The recent SU-30 crash which killed both pilots is speculated to be caused due to Cyber hacking, how valid is this? and what are the precautions Indian Armed forces taking to protect themselves in Cyber Warfare area.
