Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti has expressed grief and anguish over the killing of three persons during the cross-border shelling in the RS Pura, Suchetgarh and Arnia sectors today.
The Chief Minister said that it is very unfortunate that the people of border areas in the State continue to bear the brunt of cross-border fire power.
She said today’s incidents of shelling are a proof of her assertion that the people of the State are the worst victims of acrimony between the two neighboring countries while appealing for the cessation of hostilities on the borders.
Meanwhile, Mehbooba Mufti has directed the Jammu divisional administration to ensure specialized treatment to the people injured in the shelling. She has also directed the respective Deputy Commissioners to organise camps for the affected people at safe locations and ensure that all basic amenities are provided to them.
