Tension along the Line of Control between Pakistani and Indian forces has increased in the last few weeks.
All the Pakistani offices within three kilometers of the LoC were ordered to be shut for an indefinite period. The two sides agreed to a ceasefire along the LoC in November 2003, but skirmishes have flared across the heavily-militarized area.
Recent weeks have seen a steep increase in tensions with both sides blaming each other for having violated the agreement.
