Pakistan touches new low, makes calls to civilians residing in border areas asking whereabouts of Indian Army

The locals living in Sriganganagar district, Rajasthan, which happens to share its border with Pakistan, have been receiving fraudulent calls from thirteen digit numbers. These calls, which are being made through the internet, are trying to persuade the locals to reveal the locations and other important information regarding the Indian Army

Pakistan, baffled by India’s gutsiness after the Indian Airforce struck the Jaish camps in Pakistan, has embraced a new low. Reports are emerging that Pakistan has been making calls to civilians located in the Indo-Pak border areas and enquiring about the Indian Army’s whereabouts.

According to a report by Patrika, the locals living in Sriganganagar district, Rajasthan, which happens to share its border with Pakistan, have been receiving fraudulent calls from thirteen digit numbers. These calls, which are being made through the internet, are trying to persuade the locals to reveal the locations and other important information regarding the Indian Army.

One such call was received by the Sriganganagar village Panchayat head, Rakesh Bishnoi. As per information passed on by Rakesh, he received a call from one such thirteen digit number at 10.30am. The caller asked him whether the Indian army was present at the border. He was also asked for how long had the army been present in his area and also sought information regarding the army activities.

However, Bishnoi claimed that pretending to be ignorant, he asked the caller to contact the police for such information. Bishnoi furthered that the caller also sought information regarding the Indian Army tanks and ammunition which he did not pass on.

He received a call from a thirteen digit number (+3444172258965) and the call lasted for 2 minutes 24 seconds, confirmed Bishnoi.

The situation in the border areas is very sensitive, post the Indian Army’s laudable endeavour. Areas like Sriganganagar, Bikaner, Jaisalmer of Rajasthan and the Barmer border areas have been put on high alert. Superintendent of Police, Hemant Sharma appealed to all the locals, not to pass on any kind of information to such fraudulent callers.

Additional superintendent of Police, Surendra Singh Rathore, added that considering the current situation all the adjacent areas have been put on high alerts. Police patrolling has been increased in these areas. He appealed to all residents to stay alert and not to fall into the trap of such swindlers. Any person receiving such fraudulent calls must immediately inform the police and put up the information on social media, appealed Rathore.

The Indian armed forces had retaliated to the ghastly Pulwama carnage by executing an ariel airstrike in the wee hours on Tuesday morning, by crossing the Line of Control and breaching 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 were completely destroyed in IAF air strikes. Jaish-e-Mohammad control rooms also destroyed.
