Leaking of official secret of military operations is treason and those involved must be punished, Congress leader said on Wednesday referring to the purported WhatsApp chats of editor-in-chief doing the rounds of social media.

Addressing a press conference here, he also said that the government should immediately order an inquiry into information leak about the 2019 air strikes.

"Leaking of official secret of military operations is a security matter and is treason. Whoever is party to this leakage must be punished and those involved deserve no mercy," Antony said.

On February 26, 2019, India had launched air strikes on what was said to be Jaish-e-Mohammed's training camp in Pakistan's Balakot.
