Pakistan's loss making India angry
The killings come at a time when Pakistan is desperate for India's help on the vaccines. It is one of many countries waiting to get India's "made-in-India" vaccines Covaxin and Covishield. India has already sent millions of vaccines across the border to Bangladesh and Nepal. With Pakistan's actions, it remains to be seen if the Indian government will reach a diplomatic resolution in view of the pandemic.
