Pak grants Rs 10 cr to LoC firing victims

The government of Pakistan has approved over Rs 104 million for the victims of “unprovoked” firing by Indian security forces at the Line of Control (LoC), a media report said.

The announcement was made Wednesday after a meeting of National Disaster Management Commission (NDMC) chaired by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

“Last month, following provocation by Indian forces at the LoC resulting in the loss of civilians, the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government readied evacuation plans to relocate locals to safer areas,” the Express Tribune reported.

During the NDMC meeting, which was also attended by Governor Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Iqbal Zafar Jhagra, Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Minister Hafeezur Rehman, Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Khursheed Shah, Leader of Opposition in Senate Sherry Rehman, defence minister Khurram Dastagir, foreign minister Khawaja Asif and other top government officials, ex-post facto approval was granted for compensation of Rs104.20 million to the victims of LoC firing.
