In the wake of the escalating ceasefire violation at the Line of Control, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah on Sunday said India and Pakistan need to resolve their differences without bloodshed. “India and Pakistan have to resolve all issue and for that they have to sit down and talk, not indulge in cross firing,” said Abdullah.
An Indian soldier has been killed and one civilian injured in the ceasefire violation initiated by the Pakistani Rangers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district this morning. The injured civilian has been admitted to a nearby district hospital for immediate medical aid.
Sunday’s ceasefire violation takes place three days after two women were killed and a child was severely injured in Manjakote Sector of Rajouri district. The Border Security Force (BSF) retaliated after the firing, which began at 2 a.m. This is the 100th incident of ceasefire violation by Pakistan, following India’s surgical strike across the Line of Control (LoC) on September 29.
