New Delhi, Feb26: Pakistan has claimed that the Indian Air Force violated the Line of Control, following which the former "scrambled" immediately.
Pakistan's claim comes in the wake of tense relations between the two countries in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack.
On Friday, Pakistan's Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Jawed Bajwa had visited Pakistani troops deployed at the Line of Control in Kashmir and instructed them to "be ready to face any eventuality."
Bajwa had also visited the Headquarters Rawalpindi Corps on Monday, where he was updated on the operational situation and state of readiness along the Line of Actual Control, LoC and Working Boundary.
He met with Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan at the Air Headquarters in Rawalpindi where the two chiefs "deliberated on the operational environment including threat and response" and "expressed satisfaction on readiness, coordination and synergy," according to Ghafoor.
Tensions are high between the neighbors following the ghastly February 14 attack, wherein a Pakistan-based terror outfit, Jaish-e-Mohammed operative attacked a Central Reserve Police Force convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Awantipora in Pulwama district on the said date, leading to the death of over 40 security forces.
In response, India dubbed Khan's statement as "a lame excuse," asking him to stop misleading the international community.
