Pakistan violated ceasefire 5100 times in 2020

Srinagar : Pakistan has violated the ceasefire 5100 times this year on the Indian controlled border. According to security sources, 36 people died in firing by Pakistan in 2020. While 24 soldiers were martyred and 130 people were injured. Notably, an agreement was signed between India and Pakistan on 26 November 2003 during the tenure of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

However, data from the last few years shows that the agreement has been terminated by Pakistan. In 2020, Pakistan violated the ceasefire 5100 times, the highest in 18 years. If we look at the total number of incidents of this year, the ceasefire is said to have been breached on average 14 times a day.

A police officer said 15 Pakistani soldiers were killed in a ceasefire violation near the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu. Last year, in 2019, there were 3289 ceasefire violations by Pakistan. Of these, 1565 ceasefire violations occurred after August 2019. Earlier, in 2018, 2936 times, while in 2017, ceasefire was breached 971 times.

Not a single ceasefire was breached at the border between 2004 and 2006. After 2009, the number of ceasefire violations increased. The maximum impact has been seen in Jammu, Kathua, Kupwara, Baramulla, Samba, Rajouri and Poonch districts. Citizens in rural areas on the border had to leave their homes thrice and take shelter in safe places.

In the meantime, Indian troops have periodically responded to the firing from Pakistan. 415 crore has been sanctioned for construction of 14,400 bunkers for personnel safety. Out of this 7777 bunkers have been completed and the remaining bunkers are under construction in Kathua, Samba, Jammu, Rajouri and Poonch districts.
