Tension mounts, BSF advises villagers to move towards safe places
As the tension between the nuclear states is increasing day by day, Indian border security force officers have advised the villagers to move to safe places. Villages situated near the Indo-Pak border on both sides are hit by artillery shells. No causality is reported yet.
Pakistani and Indian troops exchanged fresh fire across the Line of Control (LoC) early Monday, an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement said.
“Indian troops yet again resorted to unprovoked firing after midnight” at LoC in the Azad Kashmir town of Iftikharabad and “Pakistani troops befittingly responded”, said the statement.
There were no reports of casualties on either side.
Pakistani and Indian troops last exchanged fire in the Bhimber sector on Saturday, with no damage reported then either.
The fresh exchange comes hours after suspected militants attacked an Indian army camp in Baramulla town of Indian-held Kashmir, killing at least one trooper of the Border Security Force (BSF) and leaving another injured.
