Military keeping a close eye on Indian border: ISPR
ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - The Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lieutenant General Asim Saleem Bajwa on Tuesday clarified that the military is keeping a close eye on the eastern (Indian) border to respond to any aggression.

“We are closely monitoring developments at the Eastern border and fully prepared to respond to incident (aggression)” he said.

“Hurling accusations of Uri attack on Pakistan without any evidence is regrettable,” he added.

“Work over 20 posts for border management has been completed and personnel of security forces have been deployed there.” Asim Bajwa said.
