LAHORE:


Closed-circuit television footage of last month’s deadly attack on the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) base at Kamra allegedly shows that the attackers did not face much resistance from PAF personnel at the base.


In a bid to escape heavy firing from militants, security personnel took shelter in a room. Evidence gleaned from the footage indicates that the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militants had “contacts” with security personnel at the base. Footage from a second surveillance camera allegedly discloses the attackers having a meeting around a table after their assault on the base. The assault led to a reconnaissance aircraft being destroyed, while two others were partially damaged. The two footages are approximately nine and five minutes long.

Sources said the tactics employed by the soldier who lost his life while fighting off the attackers and a colonel led to defeating them. The colonel not only saved the life of the base commander, but also killed four of the militants.

Sources said the evidence collected by the PAF officials heading the inquiry suggested that some security personnel who had possible involvement in the attack would be court-martialed.

E.T is quickly becoming a trash. Their reports are often proved as wrong now which actually was not the case some time back. There is no such report any where else other then E.T :d. Even a man with average IQ level knows that such sensitive investigation is not published on immediate basis and E.T from God knows which sources have published F.I.R of the incident :d Probably E.T's editors are inspired from Fox news and TOI type troll media sources.
