Chakan Da Bagh: Shelling Sends Hundreds Fleeing For Lives

Poonch, March 13 : Over 250 people had to flee for their lives as the Trade Facilitation Centre (TFC) at Chakan da Bagh came under Pakistani shelling on Wednesday afternoon, police sources and eyewitnesses told.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

They said that the panic gripped labourers and staff at Trade Facilitation Centre Chakan da Bagh after several mortar shells landed in the area.

The labourers and staff were seen jumping into the river while some were forced to crawl on the ground to save their lives, eye-witnesses said.

A police officer said that the panic gripped the area soon after the Pakistani army targeted Indian army posts in Krishna Ghati sector, Balakote Sector, and Gulpur sector.

At Gulpur sector, several mortar shells fired by Pakistan landed at the Chakan Da Bagh trade centre resulting in minor damage to one building.

Custodian Chakan da Bagh, Fareed Ahmad Kholi said that soon after the shells landed at TFC “staff and labourers fled towards safety.” (GNS)
