Following recent provocation by Indian forces at the Line of Control (LoC) resulting in the loss of civilians, the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government has readied evacuation plan to relocate locals to safe areas.
The decision has been taken amidst no let-up in LoC ceasefire violations by the Indian forces in the recent days, sources in AJK government told The Express Tribune.
Prime Minister AJK Raja Farooq Haider has directed the district machinery and local authorities in the areas located along LoC to make standby arrangements for relocating thousands of people whose lives have come under direct threat after the tension at border.
On a small-scale, the public in the villages directly affected by Indian military’s firing have been relocated. Further the evacuation activities would be extended to the sector-level if LoC ceasefire violations did not stop, it is learnt.
