Just days after Home Minister Rajnath Singh said "something big has happened in past two-three days" while talking about retribution and the killing of Border Security Force, the Line of Control (LoC) seems to be on the boil.
"Kuchh hua hai, main bataunga nahin. Theek thaak hua hai. Vishwas rakhna theek thaak hua hai do teen din pehle. Aur aage bhi dekhiyega kya hoga. (Something has happened. I won't reveal it now. Something big has happened. Trust me, something really big has happened two-three days ago. And you will also see what happens in future),” the Home Minister had said.
Earlier today, it was reported that Pakistan had violated ceasefire and tried to push in a group of terrorists under the cover of heavy firing along the LoC in Tangdhar sector of North Kashmir's Kupwara district.
Today, at 12:10 pm, a Pakistani helicopter crossed the LoC and entered the Indian airspace in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian Army said.
The army has released a video of the airspace violation.
According to reports, the Indian Army fired at the helicopter using small weapons. The white-coloured chopper hovered for some time and turned back towards Pakistan after the army intensified its firing.
Pakistan’s ceasefire violation comes amid tensions between the two countries at the United Nations, where the Indian delegation tore into Pakistan on Saturday calling Pakistan Prime Minister’s vision of ‘New Pakistan’ fake.
