Mamata Baneerjee on Thursday questioned the impact of IAF strike on JeM terror camp and demanded to know the details of the operation.

She also said that people of the country are anxiously waiting for the safe return of Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, who was captured by Pakistan.

She tweeted,"After air strike, PM did not hold any all party meet. We want to know details of the operation. Where the bomb was dropped, how many people died. I was reading foreign media and they said that none died and some media houses said one died. We want to know the details."

On February 26, India flew 12 Mirage 2000 jets into Pakistani air space and decimated JeM's biggest terror training camp in Balakot, located in Khyber Pashtun region of the neighbouring nation.

The strike had come in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack, which had claimed the lives of 40 CRPF bravehearts in a suicide attack by a JeM operative a fortnight ago. 

A day later on Wedneday, Pakistani jets tried and failed to attack Indian military installations in retaliatory strikes. In the aerial combat that followed, India shot down one of their F-16 jet, while losing one MiG-21.

The lost jet's pilot had ejected but unfortunately, his parachute landed in Pakistan-occupied territory and was captured by locals. 

Earlier today while addressing the joint session of Pakistani parliament Pakistan's railway minister Sheikh Rashid admitted that '14 Indian fighter jets' had entered Pakistan's air space and caused destruction to madrasa's run by Azhar Sahab (JeM chief Masood Azhar).
