Ceasefire violation: 13 injured in firing across IB by Pakistani troops

By Vikas

Jammu and Kashmir's police chief SP Vaid has said that 13 people were injured in firing by Pakistani troops in Ramgarh sector. Of these 13, three are in critical condition, he tweeted.


J&K DGP SP Vaid also said that Pakistani forces have been firing along the Jammu International Border in Araspura, Arnia, Ramgarh, Samba, Hiranagar sectors. Reports say that Pakistan has been violating the ceasefire for close to two days now.

"Firing has been underway since past two days, 11 people were injured today, we have shifted 210 people from Samba," RS Tara, DC of Samba region in Jammu, told the media.

An 8-month-old infant was killed after being hit by a bullet reportedly during ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Keri Battal area of Akhnoor near Line of Control (LoC) on Tuesday.

The incident occurred a day after Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that any comment on wanting peace will definitely be taken seriously. Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa had called for peace talks with India.

In a major decision, the Home Ministry announced last week announced that security forces will not launch any operations in Jammu and Kashmir during Ramzan but reserve the right to retaliate if attacked. Four civilians were killed and 11 others injured on Friday in the Jammu area due to the firing, which increased in the wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's day-long visit to Jammu and Kashmir on May 19.
