>> India's taking no chances as things heat up with Pakistan. Evacuating thousands of villagers along the border between the nuclear armed neighbors. Tensions rising following New Delhi's announcement Thursday that elite Indian troops had crossed into Pakistan controlled Kashmir. Killing militants it claims were planning attacks on Indian cities.
New Delhi saying casualties were in the quote, double digits. The strike follows a promise by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hit back at militants, after an attack on an Indian Army base earlier this month that killed 18 soldiers. Families of the victims welcoming news of the strike.>>
>> This was payback for the sacrifice made by my son and the other soldiers who died. We want the army to kill all the militants. They shouldn't be given the chance to spread militancy in India.>> Pakistan though denies the whole thing ever happened and is demanding India produce evidence of its claims about the militants.
The strike raises the possibility that following years of simmering tensions things could get violent fast. Wrecking a ceasefire that's been in place since 2003.
