The spokesperson for the Pakistan Army on Tuesday once again rejected Indian allegations about cross-border infiltration and ceasefire violations.

In a statement released on Twitter on Tuesday evening, Major General Babar Iftikhar, director general of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), said that Indian allegations were baseless and designed to divert the global and domestic attention from the crisis-like situation arising out of the August 5, 2019 lockdown in Indian-occupied Kashmir.

The ISPR DG tweeted, “Indian 15 Corps Commander’s interview with BBC - 13 Apr 2020: Indian insinuations about infiltration and CFVs by Pakistan are not only baseless but are also patently designed to divert global and domestic attention from the unending fiasco post - 5 Aug 2019.

“No less delusional are the allegations about Pakistan infiltrating Covid-affected individuals into IOJK [Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir]. Pakistan has always extended unhindered UNMOGIP access to CFV sites. We will continue to do that most transparently.

“Indian leadership will be well advised to focus on addressing the internal mess, created not only by Covid-19 mishandling but also by the tragedy unfolding in IOJK for years on end.”
