SIALKOT, June 7: At least eight cattle were killed while 13 more houses, one school building and a mosque were badly damaged on Friday in Indian shelling on villages in the Sialkot working boundary’s Chhumb Joriyaan, Bajwat and Shakargarh-Narowal sectors.

Sources said Indian security forces continued targeting the civilian population and properties in the working boundary.

Over 650 villages of Sialkot and Narowal districts along the 220-kilometre long working boundary have already been evacuated due to mounting tension between Pakistan and India.

Indian troops also fired more than 70 small and medium-sized mortar and artillery shells on the border villages.

Sources said the Pakistani army retaliated and destroyed enemy’s six frontline bunkers, two more posts (Kahna and Kahra Kalan), an ammunition depot, besides causing them other heavy defensive losses.

SCHOOL RECORD: Thieves on Thursday night took away 27- year old record of the Government High School, Kotli Channu, in Daska tehsil.

Begowala police have registered a case.

CRITICAL: The condition of district Nazim Mian Naeem Javaid, 40, is still described as critical in ICU of the Government Allama Iqbal Memorial Hospital.

He had suffered a severe heart attack on Thursday evening.
