Pakistan lodges protest with India over LoC violations

For representational purposes

A Pakistani military helicopter was reportedly spotted near the de-facto border with India (Line of Control) alerting the Indian forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

It is in this backdrop that a Pakistani military chopper was spotted within 300 metres of India's border, which was a clear violation of the agreement as the chopper had no business to intrude into Indian space beyond the limit of 1 km from inside the border.

Unprovoked firing from Pakistan has damaged many homes near the LoC.

There seem to be no letting up in the Pakistani tactics of resorting to unprovoked ceasefire violation at the LoC to aid and abet infiltration of terrorists.

The IG BSF said there was also a ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops in Uri sector yesterday and the army and BSF men gave befitting reply to them.

The helicopter later went back, the sources said, adding although it was not a violation of airspace, but it was a breach of an understanding between the two sides.

Earlier on February 19, three civilians were injured in the incessant firing by the Pakistani Army at Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

"The BSF men and officers are ready to deal with any situation".

Indian soldiers retaliated the aggression effectively and in equal measure.

As the troops were laying a cordon in the area, the militants opened indiscriminate fire at them and fled the spot.

He said some villagers living close to LoC have been moved to safer place to avoid civilian casualties during the Pakistani firing and mortar shelling.
