NEW DELHI — Stone pelting incidents in Jammu and Kashmir had come down during the suspension of operations in the month of Ramazan, Union Minister Hansraj Gangaram Ahir said today.

He said the Centre on May 16 had issued instructions to the security forces and army not to undertake offensive operations during the period of Ramzan in Jammu and Kashmir.

“During the period from May 17 to June 17, 2018, as many as 117 incidents of stone pelting were reported in Jammu and Kashmir as against 219 during the period of April 15 to May 16, 2018,” Ahir said in the Rajya Sabha, replying to a written question. (PTI)
