Kashmir Tensions Intensify amid India, Pakistan Skirmishes

Sunday, 04 August 2019 04:38 AM

SRINAGAR, India (AP) — Tensions have soared along the volatile, highly militarized frontier between India and Pakistan in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir as India deployed more troops and ordered thousands of visitors out of the region.

Pakistani police say Indian firing along the Line of Control on Sunday wounded a woman as the ongoing skirmishes have spread fear in the border villages.

The frontier residents on the Pakistani side are either moving out to safer places or have begun construction of new bunkers with some strengthening existing shelters near their homes.

The nuclear-armed rivals routinely blame the other for initiating border skirmishes but the latest ones come amid India's evacuation order of tourists and Hindu pilgrims and troop buildup in its part of Kashmir.
