A Pakistani drone was reportedly shot down at Kutch border in Gujarat early this morning at 6:30 am, just hours after Indian Air Force launched an air strike against Pakistan in Balakot, destroying terror camps. It is not yet clear whether the same was part of India’s pre-dawn strike.
As per reports, all police officers are asked to reach the headquarters and units are put on high alert across Gujarat.
In the wee hours of the morning, Pakistan has been reporting heavy movement along the Line of Control between India and Pakistan. Pakistan has claimed that the Indian Airforce crossed the Line of Control and breached the Pakistani airspace. The air strike was carried out at 3:30 am in Balakot. One of the targets destroyed by IAF Mirage jets was in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa area.
Balakot, Chakothi and Muzaffarabad terror launch pads across the Line of Control completely destroyed in IAF air strikes. Jaish-e-Mohammad control rooms also destroyed.
In the aftermath of the horrific attack on a CRPF convoy done by Pakistan based Jaish-e-Muhammad, Home Minister, Rajnath Singh, had announced in Srinagar, that the security provided to elements having links with terrorists will be reviewed. Rajnath Singh had said that separatists are hand in glove with terror organisations, terror forces & ISI across the border. They are involved in terror conspiracies too, he had added significantly.
The horrific Pulwama attack had left the entire nation in a state of shock and rage. The Indian government, resolute to discipline Pakistan has taken several measures against them. The most favoured nation status accorded to Pakistan under WTO norms were withdrawn, and then customs duty of 200% was imposed on all imports from Pakistan. Government is also working towards isolating Pakistan on the global front. PM Narendra Modi had announced after the Pulwama attacks that the Indian Army has been given a free rein to plan and execute a retaliatory action.
