Villagers at LoC in Jammu and Kashmir slam Pakistan, demand peace

Poonch, Jan. 17 (ANI): Irate over the firing from across the border, villagers residing along the Line of Control (LoC) here have urged Pakistan to stop repeated ceasefire violations.

The recent incidents of firing have adversely affected the livelihood of the locals in the region.

“We want peace to be reinstalled at the border. The repeated firing in Mendhar sector and brutal killings of our soldiers including the beheading is an intolerable act. It is not acceptable in either Islam or humanity, this is completely wrong,” said Abdul, a local.

Gaffar, another local, appealed to both India and Pakistan to resolve their issues to enable peace to prevail in the restive region.

“We have been witnessing firing from across the border since the past many days and explosives are being planted due which civilians, children and cattle alike are being distressed. Pakistan should be ashamed of what it is doing and this issue must be resolved at the earliest,” said Gaffar.

The photographs of the landmine devices, released by Indian Army on Wednesday, show that they were manufactured in Ordnance Factories in Pakistan.

The landmines were recovered in an area dominated by Indian troops. (ANI)
