Cease-fire violations by Pak indicate frustration, says Naqvi

Allahabad: Ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops in the Samba district in Jammu and Kashmir indicate Islamabad’s frustration , said Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday.

Naqvi said, ” India wants peace, but Pakistan still sticks to terrorism. Peace and terrorism cannot go together.”

He also said Pakistan has a factory that generates terrorists which would lead to the degradation of Pakistan. “Pakistan continuously breaks ceasefire but our security forces are giving a befitting reply,” he added.

One labourer was killed and four civilians were injured in an unprovoked firing by Pakistan troops, yesterday evening in Samba District of Jammu and Kashmir.

The firing began at 8 p.m. on Friday and continued until 2 a.m. on Saturday . The BSF retaliated to the firings. A total of nine posts of the Border Security Force (BSF) were targeted in the firing. The affected area was between river Basantar and river Tarna.

There were no BSF casualities.
