About 8,000 underground bunkers have been completed for the people living along the Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary in Jammu.

According to Kashmir Media Service, India has sanctioned the construction of 14,460 individual and community bunkers for the border residents in the five districts of Jammu.

Later, over 4,000 additional bunkers were sanctioned to cover a more vulnerable population.

‘A total of 7,923 bunkers, including 6,964 individual and 959 community bunkers, have been completed so far in Jammu division,’ an official spokesman said.

There has been no major ceasefire violation over the past three months in Jammu and Kashmir after India and Pakistan signed a fresh agreement to maintain calm along the borders on February 25 this year.

The spokesman said the work is also in progress on 9,905 bunkers which are under different stages of construction.—KMS
