J&K Congress slams Pak shelling on civilian areas

The Jammu and Kashmir unit of the Congress today condemned Pakistan for heavy shelling along the International Border and said targeting civilians is the "worst kind of violation" of international norms.

Seven persons, including an infant, have been killed and several others injured in Pakistani shelling since May 15.

Today, five people, including a 70-year-old woman, were injured by mortar shells fired by Pakistani Rangers on forward posts and villages near the International Border in Jammu region.

"The unabated Pakistani shelling and targeting of civilian population along the international border is the worst kind of violation of international norms," Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) president G A Mir said.

He urged the state government to provide necessary assistance to the affected families.
