India and Pakistan exchanged heavy firing in Poonch district on Tuesday morning. The Defence sources alleged Pakistan of another ceasefire violation on the Line of Control (LoC).
As per sources, “Three Indian posts – Detote, Kanga Nallah, Panjni in Balakot sector came under firing from the Pakistani side at around 5 AM today.”
As per reports Pakistan has been violating the bilateral ceasefire on the LoC since last two months, quite frequently.
Meanwhile Pakistan alleges India of violating ceasefire. As per Pakistan media, two women died and seven others were injured in Muzaffarabad on Sunday.
However there are reports of some families living along the LoC in Muzaffarabad, Poonch and Rajouri districts planning to migrate to safer places. However, there has been no official confirmation of this so far.
Indo-Pak ceasefire of 2003 has become meaningless in the wake of cross firing between Indian and Pakistani troops on LoC.
The 225-kms long LoC in Poonch-Rajouri sector has witnessed daily firing since August 10 with over 28 ceasefire violations recorded this month. There have been over 80 ceasefire violations this year from January one till now.
Pakistan and India allege one another of the ceasefire violations. Though the LoC is under the monitoring of United Nations Military Observers Group, which has its office in Srinagar and Rawalpindi.
