The whole nation is in heaps of praise for the Indian Air Force for carrying air attacks on the Pak Occupied Kashmir as a response to the deadly Pulwama attack that killed over 40 Indian CRPF soldiers.
Adding to the long list of celebrities who lauded the efforts of Indian Air Force, former Indian cricketers Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir saluted the Indian Air Force for their befitting reply.
Taking a direct jibe at Pakistan after India’s air strikes on PoK, Sehwag said, “The boys have played really well, #SudhJaaoWarnaSudhaarDenge.”
The Indian Air Force dropped more than 1000 kgs of bombs in the Balakot and Chamoli region, some 88 km inside LoC using Mirage 2000 fighter jets. The extent of the damage inflicted on the ground is not immediately known.
Notably, both Sehwag and Gambhir were one of the firsts to condemn the dastardly Pulwama terror attacks. Both Sehwag and Gambhir had also demanded strong action by the Indian government and defence forces. Sehwag had even offered free education for the martyred children in his Sehwag International School.
In Islamabad, the Pakistan Army alleged that the Indian Air Force violated the Line of Control (LoC) in Muzaffarabad sector.
“Indian aircraft intruded from Muzaffarabad sector. Facing timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force released payload in haste while escaping which fell near Balakot. No casualties or damage,” Major General Asif Ghafoor, Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing of the Pakistan Army, said in a tweet.
