New Delhi (Sputnik) — India has showed its eagerness to secure the early release of one of its soldiers, who was captured by Pakistani troops within the disputed region of Kashmir, where Delhi claims that it conducted surgical strikes on Thursday night.

Rajnath Singh, India’s Minister of Home Affairs, says, “All attempts are being made. The government will take up the matter with Islamabad for his early release.” However, it is not clear whether the captured soldier was involved in the airstrikes.
