Twelve days after a dastardly attack on a CRPF bus in Pulwama in which 40 soldiers were killed, India has struck inside Pakistan in a surgical strike early Tuesday morning. As per the sources, deep inside Pakistani territory of Balakote, and two sites in PoK -- Muzaffarabad and Chikoti, terror launch pads across the Line of Control have been distressed, along with JeM control rooms.
While officials of the Indian Air Force have refused to comment, government sources claim that 200-300 terrorists have been killed.
In the meantime, several Bollywood personalities took to social media to laud the Indian Air Force and the surgical strike.
