'Pak violates ceasefire in Rajouri, Uri'

The areas near Line of Control Khoi Ratta and Krela came under heavy firing of Indian forces

Yesterday, another jawan was injured in ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control in Baramulla district's Uri sector.

There has been escalation along the LoC since a militant attack on an army center in the Indian-controlled Kashmir killed 19 soldiers on September 18 past year.

"An army soldier received a sniffer shot in his head and has been airlifted to army's 92 base hospital Badamibagh, Srinagar for treatment", they said.

Firing between the two forces of India and Pakistan, who have fought three wars since their independence in 1947, is fairly common in the recent years.

Pakistan urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement, investigate the latest and other incidents of ceasefire breach, and instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire in letter and spirit and maintain peace along the LoC.

Reports also claimed that Indian soldiers came under heavy shelling and firing of the Pakistani army. Deputy Commissioner of Rajouri Shahid Iqbal Choudhary said confirmed that Pakistani forces violated the ceasefire in the Baba Khori belt of Naushera sector. Five terrorists were slayed in this operation along the LoC.
