Pak attempting to divert attention from military, civil conflict: Defence expert

New Delhi [India], Oct. 30: Defence expert Qamar Agha on Sunday claimed that the ceasefire violation from the other side of the border was a desperate attempt by Islamabad to divert the attention from the conflict between the civil administration and Pakistan Army.

He said Pakistan is hell-bent in creating problems but added that the hostile Asian neighbour won't succeed in its game plan.

"The problem is that what we have seen is whenever the internal situation deteriorates then they try to divert the attention on the border and this time also in Pakistan at the moment intense power struggle is going on between the civilian administration and the army," he said.

"These activities are going on for a very long time and Pakistan is hell-bent in creating problems. But they are not able to achieve any of their objectives and in future also I don't think so they will succeed in their game plan," he added.

A day after an Indian soldier's body was mutilated by Pakistan-based terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC), the Army on Saturday launched retaliatory fire assaults at Pakistan Army positions, inflicting massive damage across the border.

At least four Pakistan Army posts were destroyed "in a massive fire assault" in the Keran sector alone yesterday.
