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.
