Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti has given a statement about today’s ceasefire violation by Pakistan, which caused the death of two BSF soldiers. She said, that the ceasefire violation on the border, which resulted in the martyrdom of two BSF jawans, and injuries to civilians is a very unfortunate event and has happened even after the DGMO level talks between the two countries. And that it should’ve have happened. Further, she told the reporters that, people on both sides of the country are dying because of the situation, and advised that DGMO talks should be held again. The bloodshed should be stopped.
The DGMOs from both countries had met and held a meeting in May 29, where it was decided that they’d be adhering to the pact that had been signed in 2003, to tackle the current situation of violence from the both sides.
Lt Gen Anil Chauhan and Pakistan’s Maj Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza had been involved in the conversation. The ceasefire took place in the Akhnoor district of Jammu and Kashmir. The soldiers had been tasked with manning the front, when they were hit by the bullets. They were taken to the hospital, but succumbed to their injuries while they were being treated by the doctors. The ceasefire also caused much damaged to the houses that are set in the nearby region. Locals also shed light on the situation, and said that the firing had started at 2 am and expressed that they’re scared because of the constant firing from both sides as action and reaction.
