Ceasefire violated by Pak along LoC to provide cover to infiltrating militants: IG BSF

SRINAGAR: Ceasefire was being violated by Pakistan along the Line of Control to provide cover to militants infiltrating into Jammu and Kashmir, a senior BSF officer said on Monday.

Inspector General BSF Ajmal Singh was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function here

“Whenever there is infiltration, there is firing from the Pakistani side. The purpose of ceasefire violation is to facilitate infiltration but our forces are alert to ensure that there is no infiltration,” he said.

Singh said there was no connection between the abrogation of provisions of Article 370 that provided special status to Jammu and Kashmir and the increase in ceasefire violations following the Centre’s move on August 5. (AGENCIES)
