New Delhi, Jan 17: People living in villages along the Line of Control (LoC) are concerned about their safety in the wake of recent escalation of tension between neighbouring countries - India and Pakistan.

Villagers living along the LoC say they are scared and feared for their lives as soldiers in both sides of borders are exchanging bullets.

A villager residing in Sarya said that they were living under constant fear.

"We (villagers) might become victims of ongoing tension between India and Pakistan. I am concerned about my children and wife," said a village man.

"We are under constant fear of ceasefire violation by Pakistan, which may lead to loss to our children and our houses. Our school is also close to the border. So, we request our government to hold talks with Pakistan and ask them to continue with the peaceful situation that was prevailing since last ten years," said Ram to ANI.

Tension between India and Pakistan escalated after India strongly protested against the brutal killings of two jawans along the LoC.

Lance Naiks Hemraj and Sudhakar Singh were killed by Pakistani troops on Jan 8 in Poonch sector in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan Army regulars took away the head of Hemraj as a trophy and also mutilated the body of the other soldier.
