New Delhi, 14 September (PTI) A total of 3,186 incidents of ceasefire violations by Pakistan were reported along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Jammu region in the last eight months, the government said on Monday.
In addition, 242 cross-border shooting incidents occurred along the international border with Pakistan in the Jammu region from January 1st to August 31st, said Defense Minister Shripad Naik, answering a question in Rajya Sabha.
He said 3,186 ceasefire violation incidents were reported along the LOC in the Jammu region between January 1st and September 7th.
The minister said eight Army personnel were killed and two others wounded in Jammu and Kashmir this year until September 7th.
“Proper retaliation against ceasefire violations, as required, has been carried out by the Indian Army / BSF,” the minister said.
He said all ceasefire violations are dealt with by the Pakistani authorities through established hotline mechanisms, flag meetings and in talks between the two countries’ Director General of Military Operations.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic in the region, Pakistan has used unprovoked ceasefire violations along the LoC and made joint efforts to push militants into Kashmir.
Pakistani hostilities escalated after India announced its decision to withdraw the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and the division of the state into two union territories in August last year.
The Pakistani military is targeting border bombings as a cover to help Pakistan-based terrorists infiltrate Kashmir, according to Army officials. PTI MPB RDM RDM
