Shaukat Ali told ANI: “Islamabad must end intentionally spreading coronavirus in PoK to get international aid. Imran Khan PTI government is intentionally spreading the coronavirus to get international aid and is also trying to use the territory of Kashmir to house their sick, which is a diabolical move.”

He added: “It’s is good to note that the people of Mirpur are conscious about this move and opposing. Pakistani security personnel forced locals to evacuate their properties (plazas) and Mohi-Ud-Din teaching hospital to convert them into quarantine centres.
