Islamabad Must Stop The Bloodshed: J&K CM


Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday described Pakistan’s attack on Indian post which killed 2 BSF troopers and injured as unfortunate and urged Islamabad to stop the bloodshed.

Such unprovoked firing by the neighbour has forced scores of Indians residing on the border to flee to other places. The report suggests, between May 15 and May 23, twelve Indians died, including 2 security personnel and an infant in the firing.

Terming as “unfortunate” the fresh ceasefire violation along the International Border in Jammu region, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today said the DGMOs of India and Pakistan should hold dialogue again and stop the bloodshed.

The chief minister said people on both sides of the border are getting killed by the firing and called upon DGMOs of both the countries to talk and end the bloodshed. People on both sides are dying. The DGMOs should meet again and talk and the shelling and bloodshed on the borders should be stopped, she said.

On May 29, the DGMOs of India and Pakistan agreed to “fully implement” the ceasefire pact of 2003 in “letter and spirit” forthwith to stop border skirmishes in J&K.
