With the Indo-Pak truce having completed 32 months, there was no violation of the ceasefire along the Indo-Pak border in Jammu and Kashmir, top Army officials said on Wednesday.
"Indo-Pak ceasefire, which commenced on November 26, 2003, is going on without any violation from either side along the Indo-Pak border in Jammu and Kashmir," the officials said.
"People along the border, who had braved heavy firing and shelling before the ceasefire, are very happy," they added.
"There are very cordial relations between Indian and Pakistani troops. Flag meetings are being held regularly along the border line with our counterparts to sort out any issue, including those of the civilians crossing the border mistakenly on the two sides," they said.
As many as 107 persons were killed and over 3000 villagers were injured in shelling and firing before the ceasefire, they said, adding that the situation along the border was normal.
There is no confrontation between the troops on two sides, they added.
