India terms Pakistan’s allegations of attack on UN vehicle false, factually incorrect
Once again, Pakistan has leveled allegations against India without any substance and proof
Claims made by Pakistan Foreign Office and the country’s Army that a UN vehicle was attacked by Indian troops on the Line of Control--are completely false and factually incorrect, people familiar with the development said on Friday.
Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhary told a weekly press briefing that Indian troops on December 18 “specifically targeted” a UN vehicle carrying two officers of the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan from across the Line of Control.
Pakistani military spokesman Major General Babar Iftikhar had tweeted photos of a UN vehicle with apparent damage to its windows and chassis, and contended the SUV was the target of firing in Chirikot sector of the LoC.
Terming these allegations as “baseless”, sources said, “There was no firing from the Indian side in this sector today. Since movements of UN vehicles are known in advance, the question does not arise of any such firing.”
