Civilian bunkers surfacing in villages along Cease Fire Line

Jammu, MTT News Desk: After a gap of eight years, civilian bunkers have once again started surfacing in the hamlets along the Cease Fire Line (CFL) in Poonch as a war-like situation erupts on the border between Indian and Pakistan.

As a precautionary measure, populace in several villages from Balakot to Sabzian sector along the CFL, have started constructing bunkers adjoining their houses or renovating the old ones for safety from the unprovoked firing from across the border.

Pertinent to mention that around 45 villages including Kerni, Jhallas and Salotri in Krishna Ghati sector have remained worst affected because of conflicts between India and Pakistan. The Inhabitants here used to construct bunkers adjoining their houses for safety of their life during firing from across the border.

“The prevailing situation has forced people to be extra cautious and recreate these bunkers for a refuge from heavy firing from across the CFL,” said Ghulam Rasool of Sloor, a village situated on extreme border between the two countries.

Attaullah Handoo, a known businessman from Uri, said the tension between the two countries was not good for anyone. Uri has witnessed tremendous surge in business activities after the start of trade between the two sides in 2008. The entire area gained a lot of attention after the travel between the two dividing sides resumed after many decades. However, the present tension is a matter of concern, he added.
