“A BSF trooper identified as Abhijeet Nanday of 119 battalion was killed in Pakistan firing on the LoC in Leepa Valley of Nowgam sector late last night, a senior police officer told a media outlet here on Monday.

“Indian troops retaliated effectively and firing exchanges in the area continued for several hours,” he added.

Pakistan Rangers also violated ceasefire agreement on the international border in Arnia sector of Jammu district on Sunday, targeting BSF border outposts with small arms and automatics.

It is important to mention that Pakistan violation of the bilateral ceasefire on the LoC and the international border in Jammu and Kashmir came on a day the Indian army returned an 11-year old boy to Pakistan army who inadvertently crossed the LoC in the Valley.

The boy was returned during a flag meeting called specially for this purpose after the Indian army gave new clothes and sweets to the strayed boy as a goodwill gesture. (IANS)

In criminal matters involving NRIs, the LoC could be issued by the INA in cognizable offences, when the overseas husband is deliberately evading arrest or not appearing in the trial court despite non-bailable warrants and other coercive measures or if there is a likelihood that he will leave the country to evade trial or arrest.

Last month, the Ministry had issued five LoCs after examining the complaints received regarding NRI matrimonial disputes. (IANS)
