Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Friday questioned the timing of the ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC) a day ahead of Defence Minister Arun Jaitley’s first visit to the state since assuming office.

“Is it just a coincidence that the Defence Minister is visiting J&K, for his 1st visit, to review the security situation tomorrow?” Omar wrote on micro-blogging website, twitter.com.

 

 

Pakistan troops on Friday targeted Indian posts with heavy firing and mortar shelling along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir in yet another violation of the ceasefire, prompting retaliation by Indian forces.

Omar said that the ceasefire violations in the Rajouri and Poonch areas were significant as some of shells had landed in civilian areas.

“Significant ceasefire violation in Rajouri and Poonch with reports of some shells having landed in civilian areas. Some livestock loss,” he further tweeted
