Locals appeal Govt to bring them back
Bandipora: At least 30 cattle in a village on the Line of Control in North Kashmir have crossed over to the Pakistani side of Kashmir and locals are urging government to help them bring back their cattle.
Locals from Tulail valley said that 30 cattle have crossed over the LoC in Baduaab village which is very close to the border.
“We have been waiting since morning for the cattle's return,” they said. “The cattle were up in the pastures for grazing when they crossed the border.”
Locals said that their livelihood is solely dependent on these animals as they are using them for ploughing fields and for sowing different types of crops to secure the necessities of life.
The locals appealed to the government to help them bring the cattles back to their territory.
"I also appeal to the government to help the people in bringing back their cattle from across the border," said DDC Tulail, Raja Ajaz.
Meanwhile, a senior official stationed at Gurez said that he also received reports that the animals had crossed the de facto border.
“However, the final confirmation will come by evening as the army today allowed people to search their animal at the higher reaches of the area,” an official said.
