Jammu, Nov 15: In the view of student’s security, all the Schools in bordering areas of Jammu and Kashmir ordered to shut after Pakistani shelling reopened on Tuesday, officials informed.
Authorities closed 174 schools in villages which are located near the International Border in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts a fortnight back to ensure the safety of children.
Shelling and firing from Pakistan’s side is being done at defense and civilian areas on the International Border and the Line of Control (LoC) since the Indian Army launched a surgical strike on terror launch pads in Pakistan-administered Kashmir in September.
The border skirmishes have affected the normal functioning of around 420 schools in the border areas.
After a gradual reduction in firing, authorities have started efforts to resume normal functioning of the schools.
