Even on Sunday, 2 BSF personnel were killed
Notably, even on Sunday, two BSF personnel were killed by Pakistani Rangers who targeted Indian post along the international border. The mortars and firing came nearly a week after Director-General of Military Operations (DGMOs) from both the sides (India and Pakistan) met to implement the 2003 ceasefire pact in "letter and spirit." Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has condemned the incident.
This bloodshed must be brought to an end: Mufti
"It is unfortunate that this has happened even after Director-General of Military Operations (DGMOs) held dialogue. People on both sides of the border are dying. The DGMOs should hold dialogue again. This bloodshed must be brought to an end," said Mehbooba Mufti.
