(Pics) Pak's intentions not right: Omar Abdullah on LoC violations

Subscribe to Oneindia News

Jammu, Oct 19: In a recent turn of events along the Line of Control (LoC), the pakistani soldiers opened fire at the Border Security Force (BSF) outposts at 25 different locations along the international border in Jammu and Samba districts last night.

Two BSF jawans and 1 infiltrator was killed in the gun battle. The primary target areas were Kathua, Hira Nagar, Samba, RS Pura and Pargawal sectors.

The situation has worsened since the 'peace' talks between the Indian and the Pakistani Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Nawaz Sharif in New York. The Pakistani troops across the border have as if thrown an open challenge before their Indian counterparts to resist them from entering the Indian subcontinent.

In fact, there have been 150 incidents of ceasefire violations by Pakistan in the last two months. Expressing his concern over the end result of the peace talks, Omar Abdullah-the chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir said,"It was only a few days ago that our Prime Minister met Pakistani Prime Minister in New York. They spoke about the ceasefire violation and it was decided that the DGMOs (Director General Military Operations) of both these countries will talk to each other and find a solution to this problem. Instead of getting solved, the matter is getting worse and the manner in which civilian areas were shelled yesterday and some of our children were injured, it doesn't seem that their intentions are right."

Ironically, weeks after the meeting there have been no signs of any meeting between the military officials of both the countries.

To add to the tension, Intelligence Bureaus suggest that more than 40 training camps are there across the Line of Control and around 700 militants are ready to infiltrate at any point of time.

Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde will visit the areas affected by the firing on October 22.
