New Delhi, Dec 16: The sudden death of Chief of Defence Staff, General Bipin Rawat came as a rude shock. However the disinformation campaign in Pakistan seems to be in overdrive mode suggesting all sorts of conspiracy theories.
Many said that it could be a strike by insurgents, while others called it an internal hit job. One of the most common claims being made by the Pakistanis is that the chopper in which General Rawat was travelling was shot down by the now defunct Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. The LTTE was defeated by the Sri Lankan forces in 2009.
