Condemning the latest ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district today, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan described it as a shameful incident, as it had taken place on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, which is declared as the Day of Non-Violence globally.
"This is the Day of Non-Violence; and such incidents (cease-fire) are a disgrace to humanity. There is no place for peace in Pakistan. They are spreading terrorism and bloodshed everywhere. Terrorism is not an answer to anything and this path will take them nowhere. I condemn this incident and urge other countries to do the same," he said.
A 10-year-old boy lost his life and five other civilians got injured during the ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops in the Kerni and Digwar sectors of Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district on Monday.
The Pakistan Army initiated an unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars at 7:15 a.m. in Poonch sector along the Line of Control (LoC).
The Indian Army is retaliating to it strongly.
Meanwhile, one infiltrator was killed in an infiltration bid that was foiled by the security forces in Keran sector.
