Yet another ceasefire violation by Pak troops

In the second ceasefire violation in a week, Pakistani troops opened fire on Indian posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday night and Tuesday afternoon.

Lt Col S N Acharya, Jammu-based Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Army, said the Pakistani troops opened fire from small arms on the Indian posts in the Nangi Tikri area in the Krishnagati sub-sector of Poonch on Monday. “The firing continued for 10 minutes,” he said.

The PRO said the Pakistanis opened fire in the same area again on Tuesday afternoon. “The firing started at 1:10 pm and continued for over one hour. Our troops didn’t retaliate and there was no loss of life or injury to anyone in the firing,” he added.

 On June 7, the Pakistani troops opened fire in the Sawjian area in the Mandi sub-sector of Poonch, killing one junior commissioned officer of the Army.

Earlier, on May 27, the Pakistani troops pounded Indian posts along the LoC in the Poonch sector with rockets. On May 24, a brigadier and two other Army personnel were injured when the Pakistani troops fired on the Indian posts in the Tutmari Gali sector of Kupwara.

Sources told Deccan Herald that the troops along the LoC have been asked to remain vigilant in the wake of reports of a spurt in infiltration attempts from across the border.
Security agencies apprehend an increase in infiltration this year after the number of militants in Kashmir dropped following successful operations by the forces.
