Violations of India-Pakistan ceasefire agreement

Tensions are on the rise between Islamabad and Delhi as they blame one another for repeated violations of the ceasefire across the line of control that divides Kashmir. In the latest round of violations, on January 18, 2018 ten people were killed and 50 injured while 1000 people reportedly flee their villages located close to the border and sought shelter in rehabilitation camps. Over 100 are believed to have died on both sides since the beginning of the year. The strains between the two neighbours have led Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti (22.05.1959) urge both sides to turn Kashmir into a bridge of friendship and not let it turn into a battleground.

In another recent development, the National Investigation Agency presented charges against 12 persons before a court in New Delhi on 17 January including Lashkar e Toiba chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed (05.06.1950) and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin (18.02.1946) in a case related to funding terrorist and secessionist activities in Kashmir.
