New Delhi: The Border Security Force has released footage of a Pakistani bunker that it has destroyed in retaliatory firing, saying this is an example of the heavy damage and casualties that it has inflicted on the Pakistani side.
A senior BSF official said Pakistani troops have been incessantly firing across the border and deliberately targeting civilians on the Indian side. Several people, he said, had been killed in Pakistani firing and shelling since yesterday.
The officer said the Indian troops were only targeting military posts in Pakistan and though it was difficult to ascertain the number of casualties on the Pakistani side, it was estimated to be “very high”. “We never target Pakistani civilians,” the officer said. “Pakistan on the other hand has continuously provided cover fire for terrorists trying toinfiltrate into India,” the officer added. A high number of such attempts have been foiled, he said.
