Pakistan Army asks Indian Embassy Islamabad to prove Gen Bipin Rawat’s claim
RAWALPINIDI: The Pakistan Army on Sunday expressed disappointment over Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat’s claim of destroying terror camps in Azad Kashmir as the tensions between the two nations escalated over border clashes.
The statement comes after Pakistan Army said it killed at least nine Indian soldier along the Line of Control in retaliation for killing of civilians in Indian shelling.
Indian army chief meanwhile claimed that his forces killed four to six Pakistani soldiers while destroying terror launch pads in Azad Kashmir.
” Indian COAS’ statement claiming destruction of 3 alleged camps in AJK is disappointing as he holds a very responsible appointment. There are no camps let alone targeting those,” Pakistan military spokesman Asif Ghafoor said on Twitter.
He also asked the Indian Embassy in Islamabad to take any foreign diplomat to Azad Kashmir and prove their army’s claims.
Meanwhile, Congress, India’s main opposition party, has also cast doubt on Indian army’s claim of launching what it said surgical strike in Azad Kashmir.
A Congress leader said why such strike always take place whenever there is an election in India, referring to polls in Maharashtra and Haryana states.
