Following the Indian Army showing their clips of blasting of the Pakistani posts and the Pakistan counter claims of giving a “befitting” reply to India with their Air Force chief flying their fighter plane near the J&K high altitudes, the unusual rise in Indian Air Force fighter planes sorties left this border town guessing the next step of two neighbouring countries.

The fighter planes kept on thundering over the Pathankot skies for the whole Wednesday while the direction of flights which use to be toward North East remained toward extreme North on which side the Kargil and Ladakh Sectors are located.

One after one fighter plane is flying from Pathankot Air base which is not a routine practice, claimed Sanjay Sareen, a local who resides near the Air Force Station.

As it is in the news that our Air Force chief has issued letters to almost all air force officials to be war ready, the increase in number of sorties points toward some unexpected he added.

As Air Force officials are not authorized to speak to the media, the rise in air force sorties and the planes hovering in the skies of the town which is situated very close to the borders always keep every body guessing in the days of rising tension between these two countries.
