NCP president and former  Defence Minister  Sharad Pawar has reportedly expressed surprise over BJP chief Amit Shah claim of more than 250 terrorists being killed in the Balakot air strike.  Taking a  dig at Shah,  Pawar, the Maratha stalwart ,  said if the casualty figure had come from defence personnel, he would have taken it seriously.

Pawar also said no political benefit should be sought from the February 26 air attack on a JeM training camp at Balakot in Pakistan.

He was speaking to reporters after meeting the family of Indian Air Force pilot Ninad Mandavgane, who died in a helicopter accident in Srinagar recently, in Nashik, around 200km in North Maharashtra.

Shah, addressing a rally in Gujarat, had claimed the IAF air strike on the terror camp had killed “more than 250” terrorists.

The government is yet to officially come out with the number of terrorists killed in the operation.
