Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

Jammu: At least four civilians were killed and nearly 30 others injured in night-long shelling from across the international border in Jammu and Kashmir. Three of the injured are personnel of the Border Security Force (BSF), sources said, adding that over three dozen BSF posts from Akhnoor to Samba were hit by Pakistani shelling and small arms fire.

With this, the death toll in hostilities between India and Pakistan in the last one week has risen to 42. Nearly 40.000 people have fled their homes along the border. Many people are staying at camps set up by the administration.

Today is the 9th day of continuous firing and shelling by Pakistani Rangers along the IB and LoC in Jammu, Kathua and Samba districts.

Two civilians were killed and six injured in the shelling and firing in Samba that started at 9 AM. Pakistani Rangers also targeted civilian areas and posts in Kathua district.

“There was heavy firing and shelling on civilian areas and posts along the IB in Hiranagar sector of Kathua district before dawn”, a senior police officer said. In the firing and shelling, three persons were injured and one of them succumbed to injuries on way to the hospital, he said adding the injured have been admitted to hospitals.

In RS Pura, Arnia, Bishnah of Jammu district and Ramgarh and Samba sectors firing and shelling is going on since last night.

A large number of people have been evacuated from various villages in these sectors since last night, he said. Yesterday, 20 civilians were injured when Pakistani troops shelled Indian villages with mortar bombs.

Arnia town, which has been badly hit in Pakistani shelling, is deserted as most of the people have left their houses and taken shelter either in government camps or at the homes of their relatives. Educational institutions in the affected areas remained closed.

The latest round of shelling started on 15 May when the BSF foiled two infiltration attempts by Pakistan-backed infiltrators in Samba sector and intensified a day after Pakistan”pleading” with the BSF to stop firing after being pounded with heavy artillery that left a trooper dead across the border on 20 May.
