  • Republic TV brings you a ground report from 500 metres away from the Line of Control (LoC) from India’s last village in Nowshera sector amid continuous ceasefire violations by Pakistan
  • Republic TV spoke to residents near LoC whose lives have been affected and who have temporarily moved to bunkers to ensure their safety

Republic TV’s Jammu Bureau Chief Tejinder Singh Sodhi visited India’s last village in Nowshera sector, 500 metres away from the Line of Control (LoC) and spoke to the residents affected by the continuous ceasefire violations by Pakistan.

When Pakistan resorted to ceasefire violation, a 120-mm mortar shell hit a house in the village and exploded, damaging the house. There were no casualties as no one was inside the house at the time. Bullet and mortar marks were visible on the walls of the house. The residents of the village have now been shifted to a safer location, reports Tejinder Singh Sodhi.

While speaking to Republic TV from a bunker constructed for safety near LoC, a civilian said, “These bunkers are very good. They are helping us save our lives.”

“Pakistan is around 1.5-2 kms from here. They are deliberately firing in civilian areas,” the civilian told Republic TV.

“Even our animals are suffering. We have lost our cattle. Our houses have been damaged. We get scared when Pakistan starts firing. Our little kids get very scared,” he said.

Another local, Chandra Kanta, told Republic TV that she was scared of Pakistan shelling and urged the government to construct more bunkers for their safety.
