Pakistani troops shell LoC trade centre, narrow escape for nearly 400 By Indian Times Daily

Nearly 400 people had a narrow escape on Wednesday as Pakistani troops targeted the Trade Facilitation Centre at Chakkan Da Bagh along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district. Several government civil servants, police and immigration officials, labourers and cross LoC traders were present inside the facility at the time of the attack.

          Shelling from the Pakistan side of the border began at around 10.45 am when a mortar shell fell near a bridge outside the trade Centre. This was followed by two more shells falling within the premises of the trade centre.

          People from both sides of the LoC were involved in trade when the mortar shelling began, a senior police official said. “A few minutes before the shelling, a total of 34 trucks from Indian side had gone to Pakistan occupied Kashmir. In return, the Indian side had received 31 trucks from PoK,” the officer said.
