India has denied firing on a UN vehicle carrying two military observers in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir. Delhi has dismissed the allegations made by Pakistan as baseless. The Indian Foreign Ministry said on Friday that no shots were fired by India in the area. This information came from the broadcast media NDTV report.
Pakistan claimed that the Indian Army opened fire on a vehicle carrying UN observers on Friday, which was targeting firepower along the Line of Control (LoC). Citing officials, the Indian media claimed that Islamabad had alleged on the same day that the Pakistani army had opened heavy fire in Jammu and Kashmir’s Panch district. However, Indian officials said that the Pakistani shelling was properly responded to.
Regarding the charge of firing on a UN vehicle, an Indian Foreign Ministry official said, “The allegation made by Pakistan about the attack on the UN vehicle is completely false and factually incorrect.” Today (Friday) no shots were fired by India in this area. There is no question of such firing as the United Nations has already been informed about the movement of vehicles. This allegation is completely baseless. ‘
There has been intense shelling in Kashmir between India and Pakistan for the past few weeks. The number of casualties is increasing day by day and there is increasing fear among the people in the border areas of both countries.
On 1 December, the Pakistani Army opened fire in the Rajouri sector. A sub-inspector of the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) was killed. Also, on 26 November, two Indian soldiers were killed in firing by the Pakistani Army in the Sunderbans sector.
It is noteworthy that India and Pakistan have fought three times till now after gaining independence from the British in 1947. In February 2019, Indian warplanes entered Pakistani territory. Pakistan then shot down an Indian war plane. This incident created renewed tension between the two countries.
