CHARWA SECTOR (SIALKOT) (NNI): Indian Border Security Force (BSF) on Sunday once again resorted to unprovoked fire at the Line of Control (LoC) in Charwa Sector while Chenab Rangers retaliated befittingly.
Sources affirmed that heavy weapons were also employed from both the sides in addition to firing mortar shells whereas no life loss was reported.
An exchange of firing took place in the areas of Pisror, Dhamalia, Tulsipur and Nagoor from 2am to 4am last night. The Indian guns were silenced by the retaliatory fire by Pakistan’s Chenab Rangers.
It should be noted that the incident has taken place just as the President of the United States Barack Obama is visiting India. India continues to violate the LOC ceasefire. The country violated the ceasefire seven times in January due to which five persons, including a 13 year old girl, were killed.
Earlier, two Rangers personnel Naik Riaz Shakar and Lance Naik Safdar embraced martyrdom as Indian BSF on Wednesday violated the LoC aiming shots at the officers in Shakargarh Sector. According to the Pakistan Rangers spokesperson, BSF local commander called them over for a flag meeting and opened fire as two of the soldiers reached the border. Ranger’s representative also told that BSF were not even allowing them to get the injured officers back from the border. Both the officers died succumbed to the injuries.
Indian forces had resorted to unprovoked offences in October and November targeting various check posts, local residents and cattle. NNI
