J&K: Lull in border firing after nine days

May 24:There was a lull in firing along the International Border on Thursday after nine days of intense shelling by Pakistani troops that left 11 people dead and 60 others injured. The shelling and firing stopped Wednesday afternoon along the IB.
"There was no firing and shelling from the Pakistan side today. There is a lull", a senior BSF officer told here. However, there was overnight firing and shelling by the Pakistan Army in Lam and Nowshera sectors of Rajouri district, in which one civilian suffered injury, a district officer said.
Five civilians including a 10-year-old boy were killed and 14 others were injured as Pakistani troops rained mortars and opened heavy fire on Indian villages and posts along the International Border (IB) and LoC in Jammu, Kathua, Samba and Rajouri districts of Jammu region on Wednesday.
Shelled by Pakistan troops for past nine days, the bustling Arnia border town and nearly 120 border hamlets along the Indo-Pak border now wear an empty look, with over one lakh villagers abandoning their homes to escape heavy shelling of mortar bombs.
"Over one lakh people have migrated from their hamlets and border towns in the wake of Pakistan shelling and take shelter with their kin and some of them have come to safe shelters set up by the government", a senior officer of the state government said. Agencies
