BSF man injured in Pak shelling in Rajouri

A civilian was martyred and two children sustained gunshot wounds when Indian troops resorted to unprovoked shelling on the eve of Kashmir Solidarity Day in two districts of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Sunday.

The Indian army claims Pakistan violated the line of control ceasefire 868 times previous year, up from 228 instances in 2016, and 152 violations in 2015.

- The first casualty among the armed forces this year was reported on January 3, when 55-year-old R P Hazra was killed in Pakistani shelling in Samba sector of Jammu & Kashmir.

However, BJP MLA Raina, who demanded a resolution to condemn Pakistan for ceasefire violations, later told reporters that the neighbouring country had targeted an Army post after the Army thwarted its attempt to push terrorists in the state.

The army retaliated strongly and effectively and heavy damage has been inflicted on the Pakistani Army posts.

The issue of unabated ceasefire violations also led to a 10-minute adjournment during the Zero Hour.

He said that almost 250 migrant families have occupied the class rooms for the past about 10 months as a result of which the students had no option but to take their classes under the open sky.

Srinagar, Indian-administered Kashmir - Four Indian soldiers, including an officer, have been killed in the latest cross-border clashes in Indian-administered Kashmir.

Captain Kapil Kundu from Haryana was killed just six days before his 23rd birthday, army officials said.

The Indian government's records show that Pakistan violated the ceasefire 840 times in 2017, and that since the beginning of this year alone, it has been responsible for 160 violations. Indian troops deployed at the LoC returned fire with similar caliber weapons.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh also warned on Monday that the Army will give a befitting reply to Pakistan, a sentiment echoed by two other Union Ministers.

Faisal urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement, investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations, and instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire so as to maintain peace and tranquillity on the LoC and the WB.
