Yokohama, May 6, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said on Saturday that the Indian Army was capable and competent and will take appropriate action in the wake of the mutilation of bodies of two Indian soldiers by the Pakistan Army along the Line of Control (LoC) early this week.

"The Indian Army is disciplined. It responded in an effective manner in surgical strikes. In incident like this (mutilation), like every Indian I have full confidence in the Indian Army. It will take appropriate action. Beyond that we must learn to trust our Indian Army," Jaitley told NDTV.

Replying to a question on the clamour among the people for tough action against Pakistan, he said, "What they (Army) will decide, we leave it them. These are not issues that can be determined in public domain. Army decides."
