AN army jawan was injured as Pakistani troops, after a lull of nearly 48 hours, resorted to unprovoked firing at forward Indian positions along the Line of Control in Krishna Ghati sector on Saturday morning.

Pointing out that the injured jawan is from 22 Sikh, sources said that he has been evacuated to Military Command Hospital at Udhampur. The fire came from across the border around 5 am. The Indian troops retaliated appropriately.

The last time, Pakistani troops had resorted to firing on the Indian side on Wednesday injuring four army jawns in Mankote area of Mendhar. The Indian troops had retaliated that time as well.

Ever since India carried out surgical strikes across the LoC causing significant damage to terrorists and those shielding them, Pakistani troops have been resorting to unprovoked firing at one or the other place along the LoC in Jammu region. The international border, however, has been peaceful, though state government has alerted people living in 5 km border to remain prepared for migration to safer places any time in view of heightened tension along the borders.

    😂😂😂 Amen. Aisa hi hoga. Pak will be divided into 5 parts: lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;1.Baluchistan, where my innocent friends are killed and torture by isi everyday for years. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;2. Sindh, which is ignored and ISI has cleansed hindus to 2% from 25% potion. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;3. Kashmir (PoK) where only thing ISI and Pak Army (read Punjabis) have done is built terrorist training camps and Kasmiri torture camps. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;4. Gilgit. lt;br/gt;5. Islamabad-Peshawar which I call Hijadistan where all these enuchs buzdil live who attack innocents. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;After their independence from Pak, PoK Gilgit and Baluch will prosper. They have very smart and capable people. They are capable of another set of Hyderabad/ Banglore type IT hubs. May god give them the energy to fight these enuchs and win for freedom

      stan is a paid country to groom terrorists for a lot of wealthy countries. stan is just taking advantage of that. The US policy is hostage to their political interest in the region; so also China. The Countries in the Middle East has started to understand that the help the are giving is abused. stan politicians are playing Iran against Saudi also - to the benefit of neither Saudi nor Iran, but only a hanful of elite in stan - not even stani people,

                    If India wants to accuse stan of unprovoked firing across LoC then why do you refuse to let the UN monitor the situation as stan has proposed many times but India has refused? Since India is refusing independent UN monitoring then it's India that is guilty not stan.

                      It seems that the surgical strikes failed to achieve the desired result. That would mean that even international isolation means nothing to them. Sanctions and embargoes could be the next step so that even their godfather Chinese must feel the pinch of supporting such rogue nations on this beautiful earth. stan could aptly be called a power of dark
