Just few hours after the latest attack on camps in Baramulla in Occupied Kashmir, Indian media, maintaining its conventional propagandist journalism has already started running unconfirmed reports about the attack, suggesting the terrorists entered India from Pakistan.
Linking it with the concurrent exchange of fire in the Akhnoor sector, NDTV reported “Sources said the terrorists are suspected to have entered India across the Jhelum river.”
Zee News, while describing the attack as a direct retaliation of the so called surgical strikes, came down to even more lower levels by giving threats to Pakistan live on TV.

The latest baseless allegations come amid the escalated tensions between the two countries. India claimed it carried out Surgical strikes in a bid to retaliate for the Uri attack.
However, Pakistan dismissed the claim that Indian forces conducted a surgical strike on Pakistani side of Line of Control (LoC) in Azad Kashmir violating the 2003 ceasefire treaty.
Following the refusal from UN to confirm the Indian claims of ‘surgical strikes’, Pakistan Army on Saturday took independent journalists to the Line of Control (LoC) at Baghsir 20 kilometers from Bhimber to show the situation on ground.
“The area is such that infiltration by Indian forces is impossible and the area is monitored in such a way that even movement of wildlife does not go undetected,”Geo News’ Zarghoon Shah reported.
India claimed it filmed surgical strikes, but despite strong rebuttal and growing suspicion over its claims, India has yet to release any footage to substantiate its claims.
Secretary General UN, Ban Ki-moon’s spokesperson Stephane Dujarric also on Saturday rejected the Indian claims.
Dujarric said “The UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) has not directly observed any firing across the LoC related to the latest incidents.”
When asked to explain how UNMOGIP can say it did not observe any firing even as India said it has conducted the surgical strikes, Dujarric repeated that UNMOGIP has not “directly observed” any of the firing.
