SIALKOT (APS) – Indian forces on Sunday violated the ceasefire on Line of Control (LOC) yet again in Sialkot near Shakargarh sector, injuring as many as six residents including two women. Chenab Rangers gave a befitting response to put the enemy guns to silence, reported APS News.
India has forgotten everything about international rules or morality. Indian forces targeted Bhooray Chak village today. However, Chenab Rangers silenced the enemy guns with their befitting response. However, there are no reports of any loss of life or property as yet.
It is pertinent to mention here that Indian forces had targeted Bhopal village on Friday at the Working Boundary, injuring one man and killing 5 buffalos.
A ceasefire agreement signed by the South Asian rivals in 2003 has largely held but each regularly accuses the other of violating it. Indian officials reported nearly 200 violations in July.
India s defence minister told parliament recently that Pakistan had violated the ceasefire over 1,000 times since the agreement, while Pakistan regularly registers complaints of violations by India to a UN mission which monitors the border.
In July at least five civilians and two soldiers died on both sides during cross-border firing.
The Himalayan region of Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan, but claimed in full by both, since the two countries gained independence from Britain in 1947.
They have fought two wars over the disputed region, where resentment at Indian rule runs deep.
Since 1989 several rebel groups have been fighting hundreds of thousands of Indian forces deployed in the region, seeking independence or a merger of the territory with Pakistan.
