Gunshots were heard in Bagtor of the Gurez village in the Bandipur district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday. Though specific details are yet to come out, it is speculated that this was a result of another ceasefire violation by Pakistan. If speculations are true , this would be the 2nd ceasefire violation by the neighbours in the matter of a week. Though, other reports suggest that this might have been another incident of infiltration by cross-border terrorists.

A similar incident of cross-border infiltration got successful last week, that led to the terror attack on an army camp near the Line of Control near Uri, which led to the deaths of 18 Indian soldiers and 4 terrorists. India has since accused Pakistan of sheltering and harbouring terrorists and vowed to isolate it on a global level by proving that it is a terrorist state. Although, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, in an address to the United Nations General Assembly had claimed that ll of these accusations were false and said that India was too quick to blame Pakistan without any proof.

Meanwhile, political parties and leaders in India have been calling for a befitting reply to Pakistan. The social media has also been on war as netizens from both the countries have been going at each other with harsh words and demanding retaliation. The Kashmir valley too has been under a lot of unrest since the killing of Burhan Wani as curfew remains imposed in the valley. te situation is so bad in Kashmir that Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had also gone on to say that the attack in Uri could have been a reaction to the “atrocities” committed by India in the region.
