Heavy shelling by Pakistan has damaged several houses in the border village of Chak Changa in Hiranagar tehsil of Kathua district.
Angry with shelling, locals here protested and raised “Pakistan Murdabad” slogans.
A local Dharmpal said that firing is going on for several days. “We are demanding a solution from the government. Where do we go?” he asked.
Another local said, “We live in Chak Changa village. We are so much worried about firing by Pakistan. They fire at houses, temples. We are suffering every day because of frequent ceasefire violations by Pakistan. The firing starts at around 10 pm and continues till 5 am.”
On Friday, Pakistan initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and intense shelling with mortars along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Mankote sector of the Poonch district.
