A full month after Indian Air Force’s strike on Jaish-e-Mohammed’s terror base in Balakot, Pakistan authorities have finally taken journalists for a tour of the site, Indian Express has reported.
The journalists were taken on the tour on Thursday (29 March) and they proceeded to capture videos of the site. The report claimed that currently 300 students are present at the site which purportedly operated under the guise of a Madrasa. The zone is said to be protected by the frontier army of the Pakistani paramilitary force.
This guided tour by Pakistani authorities a month after the air strikes led many social media users to question whether the repair work at the site was finally complete.
