Poonch-Rawlakote bus service suspended for one week

Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) , July 10 : Amid escalating tensions between India and Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC), New Delhi on Monday suspended the Poonch-Rawlakote bus services.

This bus service was operated every Monday.

Pakistan violated ceasefire from the other side of the LoC in Chakka Da Bagh and Khaari Karmara area of Poonch in Jammu.

Pakistan resorted to the indiscriminate firing along the LoC in Nowgam sector last night.

The search operation is underway to track any infiltration.

On Saturday also, the Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch sector, along the LoC.

The Indian Army retaliated strongly and effectively to the firings.

The fresh firing comes a day after an Army jawan and his wife were killed and their three daughters were injured as ceasefire was violated in the Poonch district.

In retaliation, two Pakistani soldiers were also killed and six others were injured by the Indian security forces.

Reportedly, 23 ceasefire violations have occurred so far in June alone.
