Cross-LoC trade suspended after India, Pakistan trade fire along LoC in north Kashmir’s Uri

"Since the area of shelling is close to Kaman Post, we have decided to suspend the trade which was scheduled today," said SDM Uri, Baseer-ul-Haque.

The movement of goods between the two sides of Kashmir on Thursday came to a halt following shelling along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

The trade authorities in Uri said they have decided to stop the movement of goods between the two parts of Kashmir today.

"Since the area of shelling is close to Kaman Post, we have decided to suspend the trade which was scheduled today," said SDM Uri, Baseer-ul-Haque.

Two soldiers were injured in the cross-LoC firing yesterday while a residential house and a tin-shed were damaged in shelling in Kamalkote today morning.

The damaged structures belonged to Hakem Ali Mir, resident of Batar Kundibarja Uri, close to the LoC.

An eye witness who resides in the vicinity said the shelling started again Thursday morning at 9:30 am and continued till 11am.  

A former army general has said the army had created an environment to resolve Kashmir but the elected governments failed to find any solution to the vexed issue.

Security agencies have been put on high alert in Bathinda and Ferozepur districts of Punjab on Thursday following intelligence reports that Kashmiri militant Zakir Musa could be hiding in the area.
