Pakistan violates ceasefire in Rajouri sector 1 soldier dead

An Indian army soldier and a child were killed Monday after Pakistani troops opened fire across a cease-fire line dividing the troubled region between India and Pakistan, Indian officials said.

On July 10, five Pakistani civilians, including four women, were killed after Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing in Rawalakot, Satwal, Manwal, Tatrinote areas.

The Indian DGMO added that it was honest in its effort of maintaining peace and tranquillity along the LC provided there was reciprocity.

At least nine people were killed and seven others wounded last November when cross-border fire hit a passenger bus in the village of Nagdar in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

Also, Naik Mudassar Rehman, a 27-year-old jawan of Indian Army was martyred after a shell from Pakistani forces landed on his bunker, severely injuring the jawan.

He is the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, a retired IAS officer, and diplomat, who earlier worked as the Governor of West Bengal. The JD (U) attended the meeting where Mr Gandhi was selected as the joint opposition vice presidential candidate.

Sources said Pakistani DGMO strongly protested with Indian commander over the martyrdom of four soldiers.

During the telephonic conversation, Indian Army DGMO Major General AK Bhatt took a strong stand against continuous ceasefire violation by Pak army. "The indiscriminate firing using small arms, automatics and mortars that started from 7.30 a.m.is still on", said Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta.

The latest ceasefire violation along the de facto border suggests continued tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbours.

The girl and Naik Muddasar Ahmed died after Pakistan Army targeted forward posts along the LoC in Poonch and Rajouri district.
