India on Monday asked Pakistan to stop violating the ceasefire agreement after heavy shelling and firing from across the border left five villagers dead and at least 50 injured.

“Pakistan should stop ceasefire violations now and understand the reality that times have changed in India,” Home Minister Rajnath Singh said.

He said the Centre is monitoring the situation and Jammu and Kashmir government is taking steps to provide relief to the residents of border areas affected by Pakistani firing.

Congress said the ceasefire violations by Pakistan were a “serious issue” and it should desist from such activities.

“Whatever Pakistan is doing is certainly a serious matter. And we want to tell Pakistan that indulging in such activities is not good for that country,” Congress leader Rashid Alvi said.

Condemning Pakistan’s actions, former External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid said it is despicable that such incidents have occurred on Eid. “There cannot be anything worse than this,” the Congress leader said.

Five villagers were killed and at least 50 injured in heavy mortar shelling and firing by Pakistani troops targeting hamlets and outposts along the International Border in Jammu district since last night in one of the worst ceasefire violations.

This was the 11th ceasefire violations along Indo-Pak border in Jammu and Kashmir during last four days. On October 3, Pakistani troops and Rangers violated
ceasefire in Gulmarg sector of Kashmir Valley and in Poonch and Jammu sectors in which a girl was killed and six persons were injured.
