SUNDAY TIMES RAWALPINDI: Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor in a tweet said the Indian Air Force violated the LoC. After the PAF immediately scrambled, the Indian aircrafts had gone back.

He said facing timely and effective response from the PAF, they released payload in haste while escaping which fell near Balakot. However, no casualties or damage was reported, he added.

“Indian aircrafts’ intrusion across LOC in Muzaffarabad Sector within AJ&K was 3-4 miles. Under forced hasty withdrawal aircrafts released payload which had free fall in open area. No infrastructure got hit, no casualties. Technical details and other important information to follow,” Asif Ghafoor tweeted.
