As Pakistan returns back captive Indian Pilot, Indian Military starts indiscriminate fire at LoC
ISLAMABAD - As Pakistan handed back captured Indian Air Force pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman at the Attari-Wagah border on Friday, Indian forces along the LoC violated the ceasefire around the same time in Jammu and Kashmir's Mendhar, Balakote and Krishna Ghati sectors.
The violations occurred around 1800hrs, in what is a continuation of Indian forces' apparent strategy of cross-border firing.
The tension is palpable all along the LoC with Indian ground forces repeatedly violating ceasefire by resorting to firing and mortar shelling.
Pakistan forces have been retaliating with equal intensity.
