New Delhi: India, Pakistan DGMOs held discussions on hotline today in the backdrop of repeated cease fire violations by Pakistan along the Line of Control in past few days.





Lt Gen Vinod Bhatia, director Gen military Operation Indian Army called his counter part in Pakistan Maj Gen Aamir Rayaaz to discuss the issues arising after repeated cease fire violations.

Last night also Pakistan troops resorted to heavy shelling at Indian positions in R.S. Pura sector of the international border in Jammu district.

Pakistan troops used 82 millimetre mortars and other heavy weaponry to target our positions in Nikkowal and Abdullian areas of R.S. Pura sector.

High tension has gripped residents of border villages as Pakistan rangers have been frequently violating the bilateral ceasefire signed by the two countries in November 2003.

Many villagers close to the Line of Control (LoC) have already left their homes for safer places as they accused Pakistan troops of targeting their homes during trans-border shelling.
