Three minors killed by Pakistani troops in ceasefire violation in J&K’s Poonch

NEW DELHI: Three minors were killed and eight other civilians were injured in firing and shelling by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district on Monday, reported.

Among those killed were a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl. The injured have been admitted a district hospital in the Digwar sector of Poonch.
An Army vehicle was also damaged in the aggression by Pakistani troops.

“Pakistan is a country of cowards, on one side they show white flags and on other (they) target civilians,” said Nirmal Singh, deputy chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan’s claims that it wants peace are hollow, said Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

“It just clears the fact that there is no place for peace in Pakistan,” said Chouhan.

Police officials said Pakistani troops targeted dozens of villages and posts with automatic gunfire and mortar shells in the Shahpur, Kirni and Qasba sectors in Poonch, starting early Monday morning. The Indian army was “retaliating strongly and effectively”, said an Indian Army official.

Pakistan has been continually and consistently violating the ceasefire along the LoC. Just last Wednesday, two civilians were injured in one such violation, also in Poonch.

Two days before that, two soldiers were injured as Pakistan opened fire at forward posts along the LoC in the Balakote sector of Poonch.

Incidents of ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops have increased sharply this year. Hundreds of border dwellers have been forced to flee their homes due to the Pakistani firing and shelling. They have had to take shelter at camps set up by the government.

Until August 1, the Pakistan army had committed 285 such violations, while there were 228 such violations in the whole of 2016, according to figures by the Indian Army.

In another area of Jammu and Kashmir, the Army on Monday foiled an infiltration bid along the LoC in the Tangdhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
