Fresh ceasefire violation by Pakistan, five injured in J&K's Poonch
Five civilians were injured in the ceasefire violation by the Pakistani Army in the Kerni sector of Jammu and Kashmir`s Poonch district.
Srinagar: Five civilians were injured in the ceasefire violation by the Pakistani Army in the Kerni sector of Jammu and Kashmir`s Poonch district.
It was the second such act by the Pakistani Army in the past 12 hours.
Earlier in the day, there was unprovoked firing from the other side of the border at two posts in Jammu and Kashmir`s Nowshera sector along the Line of Control.
This is also the sixth ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the last three days.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) today brushed aside an attempt by Pakistan to lodge a complaint against India with the UN Military Observer Group for alleged ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.
MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup said UNMOGIP has no role in the matter.
"The original mandate of UNMOGIP was to monitor the ceasefire line between India and Pakistan. Following the conversion of the ceasefire line into the Line of Control in 1972, following the Shimla Agreement, it has been our belief that UNMOGIP has no more role or relevance in this matter," ANI quoted Swarup as saying.
