Fearing firing, residents leave border villages in Jammu
Fearing firing from Pakistani forces, around 2,000 villagers belonging Friday left three villages close to the international border in Jammu district to move to safer places, police said.
Police sources told IANS here that around 500 families Friday migrated out of Korotana, Nai Basti and Vidipur Jatta villages in R.S.Pura sector of the international border in Jammu, fearing firing from Pakistan Rangers.
