  • Description

    FIGHTING BETWEEN INDIAN AND PAKISTANI FORCES CONTINUED AGAIN TODAY (WEDNESDAY) IN THE DISPUTED RANN OF KUTCH. THE ACTUAL DETAILS ARE STILL OBSCURE, BUT IT IS PLAIN THE TWO COUNTRIES ARE ENGAGED IN A LIMITED BORDER WAR. IN NEW DELHI, PRIME MINISTER SHASTRI TOLD THE LOWER HOUSE OF THE INDIAN PARLIAMENT THAT THE INDIAN ARMY WOULD CHOOSE ITS OWN BATTLE GROUND UNLESS PAKISTANI ATTACKS IN THE KUTCH CEASED. MR. SHASTRI WENT ON TO SAY HOWEVER, THAT IF PAKISTAN GAVE UP ITS "WARLIKE ACTIVITIES, I CANNOT SEE WHY THIS SIMPLE FACT OF SETTING THE BOUNDARY CANNOT BE SETTLED ACROSS THE TABLE".

    IN SPITE OF THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE FIGHTING THE ATMOSPHERE IN NEW DELHI IS CALM. ALTHOUGH VARIOUS TROOP MOVEMENTS HAVE BEEN REPORTED, THE ONLY OUTWARD SIGN OF THE THREATENING SITUATION COMES FROM NEWSPAPERS AND OTHER NEWS MEDIA.

    ABOUT A THOUSAND PEOPLE TOOK PART IN THE BOMBAY MARCH - MANY OF THEM WOMEN AND CHILDREN. A LARGE NUMBER OF BANNERS WERE CARRIED, BEARING SUCH SLOGANS AS "CLOSE DOWN PAKISTAN CONSULATES IN INDIA" AND "THOSE WHO COMMIT AGGRESSION AGAINST INDIA WILL BE ANNIHILATED".

    (PAKISTAN AUTHORITIES HAVE DENIED THAT TANKS AND ARMOURED CARS ARE BEING USED, AND SAY THEIR CASUALTIES ARE VERY MUCH LIGHTER THAN THE 300 ESTIMATED BY INDIAN SOURCES. IN PARLIAMENT TODAY, PREMIER SHASTRI CLAIMED THAT PAKISTAN FORCES WERE STILL ATTACKING THE ISOLATED STRONGHOLD OF BIAR BET, BUT THE PAKISTANIS CLAIM TO HAVE CAPTURED IT ON THE NIGHT OF APRIL 26/27.)
