ISLAMABAD: The Indian Government was today [April 8] warned by the Government of Pakistan of the consequences of the illegal entry of Indian nationals into Pakistan territory for subversive activities with the connivance of the Indian authorities in the States of West Bengal, Assam and Tripura. The Indian High Commissioner here was called to the Foreign Office ... and told that the Government of Pakistan has taken strong exception to this. He was informed that it has come to the notice of the Government of Pakistan that arms and ammunition were being sent by India across the border under the cover of “medical and relief stores”... . — Correspondent

[Meanwhile, as reported by agencies in Baluchistan,] The Governor of Baluchistan, Lt-Gen, Riaz Hussain, who is also Martial Law Administrator, Zone “E” assured newsmen ... that the law and order situation in Baluchistan was “perfectly normal” and that he was fully satisfied with it. “Not to my knowledge” was the brief reply ... when asked if there was any proposal to appoint advisers to the Governor in this province.

[Correspondent adds from Peshawar] An ISPR release issued here ... said: Aircraft of the Pakistan Air Force have taken part in restoration of law and order operations conducted by the Pakistan Armed Forces in East Pakistan. However, it is a pure fabrication of hostile propaganda that PAF aircraft have used bombs or napalm.
