ISLAMABAD: Minister for Defence Khawaja Muhammad Asif says India was trying to give false color to the exchange of fire on the Line of Control to satisfy its people and media.

In a statement he said India’s firing on the Line of Control was part of a well-thought-out plan to satisfy Indian public opinion.

The Defence Minister said India used small weapons in cross LoC firing in which two Pakistani soldiers were martyred and nine others injured. He said Pakistani forces responded in the same coin.

He said the incident took place during night and there was no firing at the moment.

The Defence Minister said Pakistan gave befitting response to Indian aggression and our armed forces are fully prepared to do so in case of any violation of ceasefire on the Line of Control.
