Recently NGT website hacked as “revenge” against surgical strike, as tensions remains the same between India and Pakistan, pilots of Indian carriers are facing a nightmare after they are forced to listen to Pakistani songs while landing near the Line of Control(LoC).
“We are made to hear songs like ‘Dil, dil Pakistan, jaan jaan Pakistan.‘ Hacking of our frequency has been happening for some time now. In such a situation, we revert to the Northern Control in Udhampur. This IAF-run ATC coordinates with aircraft when they are over 10,000 feet high and on descending below that level, we switch over to the Jammu tower,” said a senior pilot, reported Times of India.
The development comes after hackers which the Indian daily claims are next door Pakistanis interfere with the frequency, which pilots use to get in touch with Jammu Air Traffic Control (ATC) start playing Pakistani patriotic songs.
“This is a big irritant as we are in final stage of landing,” said another Indian pilot. However, the pilots quickly switch to alternate frequency, giving ample time to pilots to make a safe landing..
