It is worth mentioning that Kashmir has witnessed almost uninterrupted ceasefire violation by Pakistan since August 15. Heavy firing by Pakistan Rangers had commenced on Thursday night in the area of Abdulian and Korotana from 2 AM and continued till 6 AM in the morning.

Commanding officer of Indian Army’s Bihar Regiment, S Chatterji said, his unit has witnessed 12 instances of ceasefire violation by Pakistan in last month alone. But Chatterji is positive that the Indian Army, along with the paramilitary force BSF (Border Security Force), will hold their ground and stop any attempt to infiltrate by Pakistanis.

It may be mentioned here that Northern Army Commander Lt Gen DS Hooda on Thursday made a visit on the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir Valley and expressed satisfaction over the robust counter-infiltration grid which led to the killing of ten militants this month.

Lt Gen Saha apprised the Army Commander about the numerous humanitarian initiatives being undertaken under 'Mission Falah'.

The spokesman said since the launch of the mission, the Army has conducted three mega medical and veterinary camps in the area benefiting over 1,100 people, besides following up the treatment of Master Fayaz Parrey, a victim of an accidental blast.

Lt Gen Hooda asked the officers of the Chinar Corps to continue to work with the highest dedication and commitment towards national security.
