Indian Army and media projecting two Pakistanis who had inadvertently crossed LOC on 21 August, as terrorists, is yet another attempt to fabricate facts
Rawalpindi, September 07, 2019 (PPI-OT): Indian Army and media projecting two Pakistanis who had inadvertently crossed LOC on 21 August, as terrorists, is yet another attempt to fabricate facts. On 21 August, 2019 two local farmers of AJK Muhammad Nazeem s/o Arif Hussain, 21 yrs old and Khalil Ahmed s/o Abdul Aziz, 30 yrs old, inadvertently crossed LOC near Hajipir while they had gone for grass cutting.
On 27 August the incident was discussed by military authorities during weekly hotline contact. Indian authorities had acknowledged and informed that routine legal formalities are taking place and they shall get back on that account. Later, on 2nd September Indian media fabricated the facts and declared both innocent individuals as members of a proscribed organisation.
On 3rd Sep, Indian authorities were once again informed during weekly hotline contact regarding false Indian media story despite prior exchange of information and facts. It was assured by Indian side that due legal process was in place and outcome will be shared with Pakistani authorities.
In complete disregard to formal sharing on the incident a false and fabricated story was presented by Indian Army during a presser on 4 September portraying the individuals as terrorists.
The apprehended inadvertent crossers had also been forced to give confessional statement under duress of Indian Army that they were trained in Pakistan and belonged to Rawalpindi. It is to note that both individuals are inadvertent crossers, local farmers and resident of Village Terraban (Hillan) along LOC and not Rawalpindi. The attempt is another Indian effort to prepare grounds for a false flag operation. Pakistan is taking up formal case based on evidence to expose Indian lies.
