SIALKOT - The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) personnel resorted to unprovoked heavy shelling on Pakistani border villages in Charwah Sector along Sialkot Working Boundary, causing damage to several houses of local villagers on Sunday.

According to Sialkot-based senior officials of the Chenab Rangers, the Indian BSF started unprovoked shelling on Pakistani villagers in Charwah Sector on Sunday evening at around 06:30pm, which continued for one and half hour till 08:00pm.

The CR officials stated that the Indian BSF targeted civilian population, besides, damaging houses of locals and cattle sheds by shelling. The Indians also fired several heavy mortar shells, some of them landed in fields which could not explode. Indian shelling created panic and harassment among locals.

The Chenab Rangers retaliated instantly and effectively in a befitting manner, making the Indian guns silent, the officials added.

No injury or loss of life has been reported, the senior Chenab Rangers officials confirmed.

Staff Reporter from Islamabad adds: Leading defence analysts remain amazed over the pattern of the India's unprovoked firing.

They believed that India resorts to unprovoked firing whenever Pakistan's armed forces launch any major offensive against the terrorists on Pak-Afghan border.

They described the latest episode of Indian unprovoked firing against Pakistan as part of India's design to distract Pakistani security forces from its major effort.


Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Abdul Majeed has said that the Amnesty International's latest report on human rights situation in Kashmir has exposed the real face of India.

“The report has revealed significant facts that the so-called democratic country is involved in committing massive human rights violations in the territory," the AJK premier said in a statement issued in Muzaffarabad on Sunday.

Majeed urged the United Nations and international human rights organisations to take serious note of Indian atrocities and play their role to resolve the long-standing Kashmir dispute in the light of the UN resolutions.

He said that Kashmiris have been struggling for their inalienable right to self-determination and India has used nefarious designs to suppress their struggle for the last 68 years.

Majeed said that Indian authorities have been enforcing inhuman and black laws like PSA and AFSPA to restrain the Kashmir freedom movement. The AJK Premier said that the valley has been turned into an army garrison, as the Indian has deployed well-equipped military and paramilitary troops across the territory.
