Surprisingly, Pakistan's attitude and denial to the entire situation remained the same, so much so that they refused to identify one of their own. A terrorist killed by the BSF was asked to take back to Pakistan when Pakistan refused to do so, saying that the body does not belong to them. Following this, the BSF has filed a formal complaint regarding this with Pakistan.
In the recent turn of events, heavy security has been deployed in the Haeng village in Handwara after rumours of terrorists being holed up there.About 10 ceasefire violations have been reported in the last 72 hours. On an overall, 130 ceasefire violations have been reported in 2013, a record number in the past 8 years.
Villagers close to the line of control are now considering moving out from the village. "Children are scared too," said one of the residents.
Meanehile, the Pakistan High Commissioner to India--Salman Bashir--said, "I believe that DGMOS have been asked to fix the ceasefire and show respect for it. I can say that our side is committed to that decision."
