Indian claims of infiltration, ceasefire violations by Pakistan ‘baseless, delusional’: ISPR
RAWALPINDI: The Pakistan Army on Tuesday refuted India’s allegations against Islamabad of ceasefire violations and purposefully “infiltrating COVID-affected individuals” in occupied Kashmir, terming them as “baseless” and “delusional”.
In a statement issued Tuesday, Director-General of the ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar referred to the Indian 15 Corps Commander’s interview with the BBC and said: “Indian insinuations about infiltration and CFVs by Pakistan are not only baseless but are also patently designed to divert global and domestic attention from the unending fiasco post – 5 Aug 2019.”
India had on August 5, 2019, scrapped occupied Kashmir’s special status under the constitution and put the Muslim-majority region under a curfew that continues till the present day. It also imposed a communications and media blackout in the Himalayan valley. The military’s media wing spokesperson also rejected India’s accusations that Pakistan was “infiltrating COVID-affected individuals into IOJK”, saying Islamabad had always offered the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) unhindered access to sites where ceasefire violations had occurred.
