  • Description

    Alleged raids by Pakistani troops on Indian border villages are reported to have brought warnings of "grave consequences" if they are continued. Officially this stand is denied by the Indian Government, which, according to informed sources, is an anxious as Pakistan to defuse tension in the current situation.

    Visnews cameraman Durgadas Chatterji went to the Indian border village of Boyra near Bongoan which is about 100 miles (160 kms) from Calcutta. He arrived less than 48 hours after a raid, alleged to have been carried out by troops from across the border. He says the atmosphere was tense, people were fleeing the village and there seemed to be a feeling of panic. While he was filming he could ear gun fire from less than 800 yards (metres) away.

    There is sound with this film. It was recorded on tape and includes the noise of gunfire and general atmosphere.
