  • Description

    AS U THANT FLEW BACK TO THE UNITED NATIONS TODAY (THURSDAY) TO REPORT ON THE RESULTS OF HIS PEACE MISSION TO INDIA AND PAKISTAN, MR SHASTRI FIRMLY REJECTED PAKISTAN'S CONDITIONS FOR A CEASEFIRE. HE SAID NOT ONE OF THE CONDITIONS PAKISTAN HAD PROPOSED FOR AN END TO THE WAR ACCEPTABLE TO INDIA.

    MEANWHILE THE HEAVY FIGHTING CONTINUES AND TODAY (THURSDAY) INDIAN TROOPS FOUGHT THROUGH THE RAIN OF SHELLS IN AN ATTEMPT TO CROSS A VITAL CANAL WHICH BARS THEIR ADVANCE ON THE MAJOR CITY OF LAHORE. EARLIER THE PAKISTANIS HAD BLOWN UP THE BRIDGE WHICH SPANS IT.

    MANY WOUNDED INDIAN SOLDIERS HAVE BEEN TAKEN BACK FROM THE FRONT LINE TO NEW DELHI HOSPITALS. YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY), THE INDIAN VICE-PRESIDENT, DR ZAKIR HUSSAIN AND THREE OF HIS NIECES VISITED THE MILITARY AND GENERAL HOSPITALS IN THE CAPITAL. TWO DAYS EARLIER, ON MONDAY (SEPTEMBER 13), PAKISTANI B 57 (CANBERRA) BOMBERS RAIDED JAMMU AIRPORT. IN A SWIFT ATTACK THEY DESTROYED AN INDIAN FORCE DAKOTA AND A NUMBER OF HOUSES IN A NEARBY VILLAGE, RESULTING IN THE DEATH OF NINE CIVILIANS. APART FROM THE DAMAGE AND THE DEAD, THERE'S THE INEVITABLE PROBLEM OF REFUGEES. MORE THAN 45,000 HAVE GATHERED IN A HASTILY ORGANISED CAMP IN THE JAMMU AREA ALONE. MANY ARE SICK OR HAVE BEEN WOUNDED, SO THERE'S ALWAYS A LARGE CROWD AROUND THE MEDICAL TENT.
