Republic Media Network's reporter Syed Suhail has explained the situation on the ground near border villages in Jaiselmer in Rajasthan.
Speaking from village Tanot close to the border, Suhail has said that the situation near the border in Rajasthan is normal and there is no need to panic.
While the sarpanch of Tanot has said that he has been asked to stay on alert by officials as the villages close to 90 km from the border can be asked to vacate anytime.
However the District Magistrate has said that there are no such alert and the instructions are routine. The PRO BSF has said that the ban is for going out at 6-7 am which is also routine.
There is no need for panic about the situation , officials have said.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Indian Air Force shot down a Pakistani F-16 jet that had been a part of an attempt by Pakistan to intrude into Indian airspace. The intruder aircraft was shot down as India retaliated to the incursion. The Pakistan Air Force F-16 was brought down in the Lam Valley in Nowshera sector. Furthermore, as per eyewitnesses, a parachute was seen as the Pakistani fighter jet went down.
The shooting down of the F-16 was part of the Indian Air Force's successful confronting and pushing back of Pakistani jets in two sectors of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday after an infiltration attempt into Indian airspace. Pakistan has closed its own airspace following India bringing down its fighter jet.
The incursion comes a day after the Indian Air Force had successfully eliminated terror training camps in Pakistan and PoK which were functioning with full impunity. The very fact that Pakistan tried to use official assets to come into Indian air space, just a day later, is only a further corroboration of the narrative that they fully support those in the JeM, the LeT and the Hizbul Mujahideen camps eliminated by India.
