Rajnath reaches out to Pak shelling-hit border dwellers in Jammu region

Saturday, June 09, 2018

Jammu: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today met border dwellers affected by Pakistani shelling in R S Pura belt of Jammu region and assured them that bullet-proof vehicles will be stationed there for their use during firing from across the border. Singh, who arrived in Jammu and Kashmir on a two-day visit yesterday, also told them that more bunkers would be built in the border areas to save lives during shelling by Pakistan, according to officials. Forty-seven people, including 20 security personnel, have been killed and over 130 injured in the R S Pura sector in Pakistan shelling and firing this year.

During their interaction with the Union home minister, the border dwellers, living under fear, demanded that bunkers should be built in every house to prevent casualties. They said also called for strict implementation of the 2003 ceasefire agreement with Pakistan to bring an end to the shelling from across the border.
