Poonch-Rawalkot trade has been suspended for the day due to Pakistani Firing in Chakan-Da-Bagh area along the Line of Control (LOC). Cross LoC Trade Facilitation Centre Fareed Ahmed Koli said, “Today morning we had sent our vehicles for trade. As they reached near the immigration centre, some firing started at the border. In lieu of the same, the Army told us to recall the vehicles considering security concerns. We are waiting for further updates from the army but the delay may mean that no trade would be possible for today”. At least five civilians were injured in ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Bandi Chechian village in Poonch district. The injured have been admitted to a district hospital for treatment.
