ISLAMABAD: Pakistan today [July 24] denied India’s allegation that Pakistani aircraft violated Indian airspace on Tuesday [July 20] last. Official sources here described as “completely baseless, without foundation and mischievous” the allegation that two Mirage jets had flown at only 500 feet over the airport at Srinagar. An Indian protest Note against the alleged violation … was understood to have been handed over to Pakistan’s High Commissioner in India. The Note has not yet been received here but it would undoubtedly be rejected. — Agencies

[Meanwhile, as reported by agencies in Dacca,] The moveable properties of the outlawed Awami League leader Tajuddin Ahmed and two others convicted by Special Military Court No 1 will be sold on public auction here by the Government on July 25, it was officially announced…. The successful bidders will have to deposit the full amount of the bid money on the spot after the bid is closed and the articles will be delivered then and there. The authority, however, reserves the right to accept or reject any bid without assigning any reason.

[Agencies add from Quetta] The Khan of Kalat, Mir Ahmad Yar Khan, today [July 24] said that the security and solidarity of Pakistan was supreme…. Talking to a group of newsmen … the Khan appealed to political leaders to lend full support and co-operation to President Yahya Khan….
