Pakistan Army yesterday claimed that the Indian drone was being used for aerial photography near the LoC in Bhimber area of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and was “brought down for violation of Pakistan’s territorial integrity”.

The Indian Army as well as the Indian Air Force, however, denied that any of their drone has been shot down or crashed.

Days after India and Pakistan agreed to re-engage, fresh strains surfaced in the ties yesterday after Pakistan Rangers violated the ceasefire twice by resorting to firing and mortar shelling in the Akhnoor sector in which a woman was killed and six others, including two BSF jawans, were injured.

    Pak army is very angry that Nawaz Sharif 'surrendered' to Modi in joint declaration. They are out to destroy the chance of peace created by the declaration. But can they be successful ultimately?

    They have been playing upon the Bansuri since 1948. Instead of referring the Kashmir issue to the UNO, Pundit Nehru, ought to have remembered the muhaawaraa in his mother tongue, ‘Na Rahegee Baans; Na Bajegee Baansuri!’ It is time now that we should have opted out for refusing to listen continually to the same rhapsody again and again. If we really believed that Kashmir was the integral part of India then what is stopping us from reclaiming it? We should emulate Israel. Nuclear bogey should remain clearly out of the Indian policy-makers’ mind.
