New Delhi: Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde visits the flashpoint areas along India’s border with Pakistan in the backdrop of a series of ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops, the latest reported early this morning from the Abdullian sector in RS Pura. The visit also comes as a war of words between India and Pakistan over Kashmir is on, with Islamabad lashing out at India for calling the disputed region an integral part of the country.
“You fight for us, for the nation. You are very brave and I congratulate you all,” Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde told the Indian soldiers as he visited the forward Indian posts in Samba sector of Jammu and Kashmir, which is among the areas worst hit by Pakistan’s shelling in over a decade.In a significant statement with far-reaching implications on the morale of the Indian army, Mr Shinde said all the central para-military forces will get the status of ex-servicemen.Hours ahead of Mr Shinde’s visit, there was fresh violation from across the international border today at the Abdullian sector of RS Pura in which several BSF posts were targeted in heavy firing that continued for an hour.The Home Minister is also expected to visit Hiranagar police station in Kathua district, where five policemen were killed in an attack by the militants last month. The attack is said to have escalated the ceasefire violations.The frequent ceasefire violations by the Pakistan army has triggered fear among civilians in the border areas, forcing them to migrate from their villages to safer locations.
