Pakistan violates ceasefire in J&K, 1 jawan killed in firing

Poonch: Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district on Sunday woke up to heavy shelling and firing again, as Pakistani Rangers violated ceasefire, three days after two women were killed and a child was severely injured.

The firing started at 2 am today at the KG Sector, where the Border Security Force (BSF) is aptly retaliating to the firing initiated by Pakistan.

1 jawan was killed in the firing at Mankote.

On Thursday, two women were killed in heavy firing and mortar shelling in Manjakote Sector of Rajouri district.

Also, a 14-month -old child was injured in cross-border firing and continues to be critical.

Authorities in Kashmir have already evacuated hundreds of people from villages along the frontier with Pakistan following frequent ceasefire violations.

This is the 101st incident of ceasefire violation by Pakistan, following India’s surgical strike across the Line of Control (LoC) on September 29th, targeting Pakistan occupied Kashmir-based terrorist launch pads.
