Border dwellers desert shell-hit hamlets along LoC

0

A chain of border hamlets along the LoC wear a deserted look with villagers abandoning their houses to escape the shelling and firing from across the border. Mortar marks on the walls of houses and shutters of shops in the area are a mute testimony to the firing from across the border.

Border dwellers have fled the LoC hamlets of Panjtoot, Channi Dewano, Mogyal Lalo, Somwa, Chapriyal, Gigriyal, Paltan, Mili Di Khae and Jodian in Pallanwala belt. Pallanwala market town is also shut down for the past three days following heavy shelling.

“Market is closed for the past three days since the firing and shelling”, Suresh Kumar, a resident said. Forced to leave their hamlets and cattle, the border residents want the Narendra Modi government to take strong action against Pakistan so that it does not repeat the terror attacks and ceasefire violations along LoC.

“Nobody wants a war but we border people, who have been forced to desert our homes and hamlets every time during ceasefire violations almost annually, want that Pakistan should be taught a lesson so that it does not dare to violate the ceasefire again”, Sita Devi, who along with her family has taken shelter in a camp setup at Radha Swami Ashram in Khour, said.
