New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday said people who have been displaced from border villages of Jammu and Kashmir due to ceasefire violations by Pakistan should be compensated.
“Narendra Modi has directed that people who have been displaced from the border villages of Jammu and Kashmir due to dastardly acts of shelling by Pakistan over the last few days, be suitably compensated,” an official statement said.
“Details of the compensation will be announced in due course,” the statement added.
Most villages along the International Border (IB) in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts have been evacuated since Pakistan Rangers targetted villages and BSF positions since Oct 6.
Over 20,000 residents of villages close to the border in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts have been shifted to 30 relief camps set up at safer places.
