‘Indian Air Force not in a position to count casualties,’ : Air chief marshal

India’s Air Chief Marshal Birender Singh Dhanoa on Monday placed the onus of announcing the number of ‘casualties’ that resulted from an airstrike in Pakistan’s Balakot on the BJP government, saying that the Indian Air Force (IAF) “cannot count how many people died”, NDTV reported.”That statement will be made by the government,” Dhanoa said in response to a question during a press conference in Coimbatore.”Air force is not in a position to clarify how many people were inside… we do not count human casualties,” he said. His statement comes a day after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah claimed “more than 250 terrorists” were killed in the air strikes in Balakot on “training camps of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM)”.
