India rubbishes Pak's allegations of airspace violation

By Hari Krishnan

New Delhi/Islamabad, Dec 14: Responding to the allegations of Pakistani Air Force (PAF) about Indian Air Force (IAF) jets violating Pakistani airspace, Indian air force officials on Sunday, Dec 14 morning rubbished the reports of violation. The officials also said that they had received no complaint from the Pakistani side.

Responding to the issue, a senior Indian Air Force (IAF) official in the Western Air Command said, "There is no truth in the allegations, it is all rubbish."

The official said, 'We haven't even received any complaint from the Pakistani air force.'

Dawn News of Pakistan quoted Pakistan Air Force Air Commodore Humyun Viqar as saying, "Both the Indian aircraft entered into Pakistan's airspace between two to four nautical miles at two different sectors." He said the Pakistani jets responded, forcing the Indian aircraft to turn back.

Information Minister Sherry Rehman told Dawn News that the Indian leadership had been contacted, and the incident was described as 'inadvertent', and that the Pakistan air-force and army had been placed on alert but 'did not wish to escalate the situation' any further.
