Srinagar, (UNI): Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire by engaging in unprovoked firing and shelling, targeted at forwarding bases and civilian areas in the frontier district of Kupwara in North Kashmir. A Defence Ministry spokesperson said that the Pakistani troops initiated this ceasefire violation in the Machhal and Gugaldhar sectors in Kupwara.
He added that the Pakistanis used Mortars and other weapons for this Unprovoked Ceasefire Violation (UCV) to target forward posts and civilian areas. Our troops gave a befitting reply to this violation.
It is now common knowledge that Pakistani terrorists use these incidents to sneak into India. The Pakistani military establishment and government work hand-in-glove with terror groups to instigate violence in Kashmir. Senior Army and Police sources have said that the terrorists want to infiltrate into India before their routes are closed down due to snowfall. In fact, at terror camps across the LoC, terrorists are waiting to enter India under the guise of ceasefire violations.
Our troops man the border throughout the day and night to ensure no one can infiltrate into India, but there are some who do so under the cover of darkness. However, the Army and paramilitary are doing all they can to ensure peace and tranquillity in Jammu and Kashmir.
