LoC: Pak targets 20 BSF posts in 24 hours

Jammu, Aug 18:Despite peace talks and international interference, Pakistan has not retracted on its path of violating the ceasefire. They fired at the Indian posts of Arnia and RS Pura, forcing Indian troops to retaliate. This was the third ceasefire violation in the past 24 hours.

Sources say that there have been 10 such incidents in the past 9 days. Yesterday, Pakistani troops used automatic and small arms in heavy firing along the International border and the Line of Control in Jammu and Poonch districts.

The border situation has increased the pressure on the talks that are to be held between the Indian Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh and her Pakistani counterpart Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry on August 25.

Incidentally, this is the first official dialogue between two countries a year and half after the beheading of the Indian Jawan took the relation between the two countries to an all time low.

Meanwhile, Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit's invitation for Kashmiri separatists has drawn speculations among the political parties.

In a tweet, Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said, "Pak High Comm feting separatists, Pak Army intruding across the border, ISI attacking Indian Consulate in Herat, BJP govt sleeps. Ache Din Agaye (Good times)".

Till date, Narendra Modi, the newly-appointed Prime Minister of India, has taken a complaisant stance against his neighbors until when in Kashmir. Here he said,"Pakistan has lost the strength to fight a conventional war, but continues to engage in the proxy war of terrorism."
