In the aftermath of fresh tensions that have broken out between India and Pakistan, the airports in Jammu, Srinagar and Leh have been shut indefinitely.
It need be mentioned that all of these airports are close to the border with Pakistan.
The move comes after an Indian Air Force (IAF) chopper crashed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam this morning. Two bodies have been found, said the police.
The crash took place in the backdrop of heavy shelling and firing from across the border on a day IAF fighter jets crossed the Line of Control and destroyed a vast terror camp within Pakistan in a pre-dawn strike.
The area has been on high alert amid warnings of retaliation after India’s fighter jets crossed the Line of Control and destroyed a vast terror camp within Pakistan in a pre-dawn strike on Tuesday.
Air Vistara tweeted that flights from Amritsar, Srinagar, Chandigarh and Jammu are on hold due to the airspace restrictions.
