Indian envoy summoned to protest continuous ceasefire violations

Indian envoy summoned to protest continuous ceasefire violations

Pakistani troops today fired mortar shells targeting villages along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district, Indian police said.

Pertinently, 56, Ali Mohd, resident of Silikote close to LoC while talking to STATE TIMES said that, "I was on the shop, suddenly indiscriminate firing started, I locked off my small general store shop and rushed towards my home, close to my shop".

"Around 500 to 600 persons from these villages have migrated on their own while another 500 to 600 have been shifted by the government to Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Uri", he said.

Tension mounted along the LoC in the Valley since February 20, when Pakistani army killed a BSF jawan with sniper fire.

Rasheed added that the state government has miserably failed to protect the rights of inhabitants of Selikote, Hatlanga, Charunda, Tilawari and Balkote, whose lives are always under constant threat as nearly the whole population has been thrown on the other side of the LoC fencing. The residents demanded that the Government should ensure an end to the ceasefire violations or rehabilitate them at safer places where they can live without fear.

While addressing the media, Ahlawat said that the Pakistan Army is continuously carrying out ceasefire violations since February 19, but the army had swung into action and provided immediate relief to the villagers, including food, medicine, drinking water and provisioned sleeping bags.

India blamed Pakistan for the attack and said it would make its rival pay for the "misadventure".

"District Administration/ CAPF/ Army taking care of them".

"Instead of letting the situation go out of hand, Indian and Pakistani government should hold talks and uphold the border ceasefire", Din said.

Firing in Uri continued intermittently for past four days till Saturday morning and more than 35 families from around six villages including Churanda, Tilawari, Sallikoot and Hathlanga have shifted to main town Uri.
