Construction of bunkers underway in border areas to reduce civilian casualties

Sharing is Caring

Poonch (J&K), Jan 23 (ANI): Construction of bunkers along the border areas in Jammu and Kashmir is underway to reduce civilian casualties in wake of spate in ceasefire violations. Community bunkers have a capacity of accommodating around 30-35 people at once. They have separate partitions for housing men and women and are equipped with basic facilities like ventilation and electricity. A local resident said such steps were good, but urged the state government to build more to ensure safety of its people. Frequent ceasefire violations from Pakistan affects the villagers residing in the area too, as bullets and mortar shells sometimes land on their properties resulting in loss of lives, injuries and physical damages.
