Though the international community has stood by India following Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir region, India deplored that still Pakistan is attempting to cover dreaded Pakistan-based terror group JeM, denying its own claim of carrying out the terror strike.
Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar today asserted that Pakistan-based terror groups were conducting their activities without any hindrance. He said that Pakistan must show credible, verifiable and sustained action against terror groups operating from its soil.
He asserted that India’s non-military strike on JeM terror camp in Pakistan has achieved its desired objective and demonstrated the country’s firm resolve to take decisive action against cross border terrorism.
He also said that said that an Indian Air Force MiG-21 Bison, piloted by Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, shot down a Pakistan Air Force F-16 fighter aircraft and there were eyewitness accounts and electronic evidence for it.
“We have also shared evidence in the form of parts of AMRAAM missile which were recovered from the site and are only carried by F-16 aircraft of the PAF,” he said.
“Our non-military counter-terrorism strike achieved the desired objective. It has demonstrated our firm resolve to take decisive action against cross border terrorism,” he said.
Stating that only one aircraft was lost by India during Pakistan’s unsuccessful attempt at targeting Indian military installations, he asked Pakistan claims, it has evidence of downing of second Indian aircraft then why has it not shared it.
