Throughout Tuesday, the news was rife with reports of Line of Control violation by Indian Air Forces and the subsequent payload drop at Balakot. While India claims 350 militants of JeM, a militant group that took responsibility for the Pulwama attack, have been targeted and killed, Pakistan has assured that there were no casualties.
Past midnight on Tuesday, while news channels aired routine programs, many people took to twitter to report that heavy firing is taking place across the Sialkot border. The news is as yet unverified by the government and credible news channels.
It is quite possible that people are trying to raise hue and cry, considering the already tense political situation. The hashtag ‘#Sialkot’ has already replaced ‘#IndianFailedStrike’ for the number one trending spot on Twitter.
