A civilian sustained injury after he accidentally stepped on a landmine, triggering blast, along the international border in Jammu and Kashmir, media reports said early Monday morning.
“The victim identified as Sewa Ram said he had taken his cattle for grazing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Sarya village. Ram was rushed to the district hospital by the army personnel after giving him preliminary treatment. Doctor Abdul Salam Choudhary said that though the injury was severe but the victim’s foot could be saved. It is a common practice for countries to hide landmines across their borders,” the reports said.
