Pakistan violates ceasefire in Jammu’s Rajouri

Jammu: Pakistan Army on Monday resorted to firing and mortar shelling at Indian positions along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

The firing started at 8 am. Our forces are effectively retaliating

“Pakistan Army initiated indiscriminate firing and shelling on our positions on the LoC in the Naushera sector,” Defence Ministry spokesman Manish Mehta said.

They are using small arms, automatics and mortars, he said.

“The firing started at 8 am. Our forces are effectively retaliating,” Mehta added.

Firing exchanges are still continuing.

Meanwhile, clashes between group of protesting students and security forces broke out here on Monday resulting in heavy lobbing of tear gas shels by the forces.

A group of students from the SP College blocked the Maulana Azad road in Srinagar to protest against the army’s action on students in Pulwama on Saturday in which more than two dozen students got injured.

The army had entered in to the Degree College Pulwama where students resisted and pelted stones over their vehicles.

The students of the SP College also resorted to stone throwing on security forces and the armed police in which the Station House Officer (SHO) of the Kothibagh police station got injured.

The forces then used tear gas smoke shells and batons to disperse the students who kept on regrouping to engage the security forces in pitched clashes.
