Omar Abdullah condemns LoC killings
Pune/Poonch: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah condemned the brutal killing of two Indian jawans along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch District, and said that the terms of the ceasefire agreement should be adhered to by India as well as Pakistan.
"We condemn the incident in strong words and what else can I say. But we also want that there is a need to ensure the terms of the ceasefire agreement should be adhered to by both the nations," Abdullah told the media in Pune. "The state of Jammu and Kashmir gets affected due to its violation in two ways. The lives of the people living along the borders and Line of Control are adversely affected. Secondly, we have observed that at the active Line of Control they (Pakistan) get more opportunities to infiltrate," he added.
The tension between the two Asian neighbours has aggravated after the brutal killing and beheading of the two Indian soldiers.
Pakistan has denied India's claim that its troops crossed the Line of Control to ambush a patrol party in the Mendhar sector in Poonch district.
The high commissioners of the two countries have been summoned by the respective governments throughout this week and served with demarches' to explain recent hostile developments in each other's territory and across.
