Pakistan Authorities Issue Advisory to Villagers Living Near Line of Control

The advisory said India may undertake some 'activity' that could endanger the lives of the locals.

New Delhi: People in villages in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) along the Line of Control (LoC) have been asked by authorities to remain alert amidst mounting Indo-Pak tension following the Pulwama terror attack that killed more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.

An official advisory has been issued asking all those residing around the LoC to take precautions like using safe routes while commuting, officials in the know said Thursday.

Residents have been also asked to avoid being in groups at a particular place and to build bunkers.

The residents should avoid using unnecessary lights during night time and refrain from unnecessary travel near the LoC routes, the advisory issued by officials in the PoK said.

Without referring to the 2016 surgical strike against terror camps in PoK, the advisory said India may undertake some ‘activity’ that could endanger the lives of the locals.

The villagers have also been asked not to take animals for grazing near the LoC.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier said the perpetrators of the February 14 Pulwama massacre will not go unpunished.
