Truce must continue: Omar

PRESS TRUST OF INDIA

Pune, Jan 11: Amidst escalating tension along the Indo-Pak border, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Friday said the ceasefire between the two countries must continue because its violation adversely affects the population of the militancy-affected state.
 Abdullah, asked to react to the killing of two Indian soldiers along the Line of Control (LOC) with Pakistan, said, “We have already condemned it strongly. We want the ceasefire between the two countries to continue because its violation affects the J and K population.”
 The ceasefire, which came into force in 2003, was also necessary to prevent infiltration into the state, he added.
 Abdullah was talking to reporters on the sidelines of a “Students' Parliament” organised by Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT) here.
