Pak troops again violate ceasefire, heavy firing in Poonch district

Srinagar, October 6: In yet another border betrayal, Pakistani troops again violated the ceasefire at the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday evening.

TV reports said that fresh incident of heavy firing took place at Bhimber Gali and Krishna Ghati area of Poonch at around 5.40 pm.

In morning, five civilians were killed and 25 injured in shelling from the Pakistani side of the India-Pakistan border in Jammu district  

Today's major ceasefire violations by Pakistani rangers came on a day when Muslims in both India and Pakistan are celebrating the holy Eid-ul-Azha festival.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said Pakistan's indiscriminate cross-border firing, only shows the neighbouring country's frustration over its failure to rake up the Kashmir issue.

Omar rushed from Srinagar despite the Eid-ul-Adha festival to attend the cremation of five civilians killed in mortar shelling by Pakistan Rangers in Arnia sub-sector of R.S. Pura in Jammu district.

Talking to media persons, Abdullah said, "Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif tried to raise the pitch over Kashmir during his UN general assembly address. But he did not find any takers for his rant over Kashmir. It (Pakistan) is now showing its frustration by targeting civilian areas on our side of the border".
