According to several media reports, Pakistan’s reaction was expected as it ‘did not want to escalate the situation’. Amidst all this, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif also called a cabinet meeting which is scheduled to be held on Friday.

Towards the end of the day, Pakistani media began reporting that there were casualties on Indian side which India denied and said that no such casualties were reported from anywhere along the LoC. One Indian soldier had inadvertently crossed the LoC and entered the territory occupied by Pakistan and was captured by their soldiers.

There have also been reports that the entire operation carried out by jawans was captured using a drone. However, Pakistani newspapers on Friday reported that the announcement regarding surgical strikes was just used by Indian government to ‘fool its people’. It also gave more importance to the claim that eight Indian soldiers were killed along LoC.
