Journalists visit villages along Sialkot border

SIALKOT, (Pakistan Point News - 07th Nov, 2016 ) : A team of Sialkot-based senior journalists Monday visited the villages situated along the Working Boundary to watch for themselves damages caused to humans and properties by shelling of the Indian Border Security Forces (BSF). A group of people displaced due to Indian shelling told journalists that they were returning to their homes after about two weeks. They apprised journalists of the Indian BSF brutalities and hostilities in details and showed their houses, walls and roofs badly damaged by the Indian shelling.

However, they were in high spirits and vowed to sacrifice their lives for the defence of their motherland. They said that the Indian BSF resorted to unprovoked intensified shelling, targeting civilian population in Sialkot border villages in Chaprar, Bajwat, Sucheetgarh, Harpal, Charwah and Shakargarh sectors. So far, the Indian shelling has killed eight people and injured over 56 in Sialkot border villages. Dozens of cattle-heads were also killed and injured in the unprovoked mortar shelling. The visiting journalists expressed complete solidarity with the armed forces of Pakistan as well as the people living in Sialkot border villages against the Indian aggression. APP/ir/rsd/ahn
