Pakistan shelling causing avalanches in Jammu and Kashmir : Army chief
Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said heavy shelling by Pakistani troops are triggering avalanches in Jammu and Kashmir that have claimed the lives of 15 Armymen.“Ceasefire violations and use of heavy weapons by Pakistani troops are leading to loosening of soil. When there is a heavy snowfall on such a loose soil and if there is a slope, it triggers danger of an avalanche,” he said after paying homage to Major Amit Sagar, who lost his life in an avalanche in Sonamarg on January 25.
