Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Friday said that India aims to create unrest in the Pakistan-controlled part of Kashmir by making claims on the presence of militants along LoC.

Army said in a statement that the Chief of Army Staff visited the LoC in Kel sector and a forward post at Sharda. He was briefed on the situation along the LoC by General Officer Commanding, Murree, Major Gen Azhar Abbas.
