MUZAFFARABAD: Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider on Thursday called upon the United Nations to take stock of “war crimes” by Indian troops who are brazenly shelling civilians, public transport and property, including livestock, from across the Line of Control.
“These war crimes should not go unnoticed… it’s the silence of the international community in general and the UN in particular that has encouraged India to kill Kashmiris on both sides of the divide,” said Mr Haider before leaving for Kotli and Bhimber districts to express solidarity with the victims of Indian shelling.
Shelling on a passenger coach with defenceless civilians on board was an act of savagery, he added.
Speaking to a gathering in Nakyal sector in Kotli, he said the federal government was approached to sanction a scheme worth Rs6 billion for the construction of cemented bunkers to protect the people living along the border.
