Woman injured in Pakistan shelling at LoC in Jammu and Kashmir

One woman, identified as Rahmat Bi was injured as Pakistan army violated ceasefire on the Line of Control (LoC) in Nowshera sector of Rajouri District on September 12, reports Daily Excelsior. Official sources said Pakistani troops resorted to firing at Lambi, Patti and Pukharni forward areas of Nowshera sector at 5.30 am on September 12. A woman sleeping inside her house was hit by a bullet and injured. Indian troops retaliated the firing, leading to exchange that lasted half an hour.  

Meanwhile, uprooted from their homes after firing by Pakistan Army, people from border areas living in schools-turned-camps have demanded individual bunkers at their residences on September 11, adds Daily Excelsior. Over 5,000 people living in 23 hamlets along the LoC were forced to leave their houses in Nowshera sector of Rajouri District following heavy firing and shelling four months ago. Four civilians were killed and five others were injured in firing and shelling by Pakistani troops in different sectors of Rajouri in the recent past. The residents made the demand for individual bunkers to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on September 11 during his visit to one of the six camps set up in Nowshera by the Government. “Our first and foremost demand is that Government should set up individual bunkers in each of the border house, if we have to live again along the LoC. This is most and first demand of the LoC people,” Jangarh resident Prashtom Kumar said. Kumar, who is the president of Border Migrants Coordination Committee, conveyed the demand to Singh and said, “We need bunkers more than food. It serves as a bullet-proof jacket for us and our families.”
