The Border Security Force (BSF) on November 1 released a video footage which shows a Pakistani bunker being destroyed by the Indian Army during a retaliatory firing.The video was released as a proof by BSF, that Pakistan is also taking heavy damage and casualties in the attacks that it has inflicted on the borders. Talking about the video, DK Upadhyaya,BSF IG told media that Pakistani troops have been incessantly firing across the border on the Indian side and has been deliberately targeting civilians, so as to kill or injure them.
But India in retaliation has only fired and targeted its military posts, which he said has been “continuously providing cover fire for terrorists” who have been trying to infiltrate into India.

He further added that though it was difficult to ascertain the number of casualties on the Pakistani side, they too have suffered a “very high” number of casualties , as India has foiled a high very number of such infiltration attempts made by them.
