Army Chief Bipin Rawat on Wednesday said that those who obstruct army operations during encounters and are not supportive will be treated as overground workers of militants, reports said.

“If you raise ISIS flag, you will be treated as anti-national and be ready to face consequences,” he said after paying tribute to army men who lost their lives in encounters with militants yesterday.

Rawat also briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the incidents in which the casualties took place.
