Jammu, Nov 22: General Commanding Officer 16 Corps, Lieutenant General Saranjit Singh Wednesday alleged that Pakistan this year resorted to massive shelling and firing and targeted civilian areas along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.
He was responding to questions of reporters in border district Poonch.
“This year, Pakistan violated cease fire and without any provocation targeted military posts and civilian areas. We also gave them befitting reply,” he said and added that army has constructed bunkers and when need arises, civilians can be accommodated in them.
