An unidentified woman hailing from Pakistan-occupied Jammu and Kashmir (POJK) was shot dead by Indian security forces on Monday after she crossed the Line of Control in Baramulla district.
As per officials, she crossed the LOC in Kamalkote area and was inching closer to the border fence when she was challenged by the forces to stop. Disregarding the orders, woman persisted in moving closer to the restricted zone.
Faced with the woman’s non-compliance, the security forces were left with no choice but to open fire, resulting in her tragic death. Meanwhile, in a separate incident, Indian security forces thwarted another infiltration attempt in the Rajouri district of Jammu & Kashmir.
Infiltration attempts have increased in recent weeks, but Indian security forces’ alertness has successfully foiled these endeavours. Their vigilance remains crucial in safeguarding the region and preventing unauthorized crossings.
