Targeting of civilian facilities by the Pakistani Army near the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Uri sector has forced some 500 people to abandon their homes and migrate elsewhere, a top officer said on Friday.

Director General of Police S.P.Vaid said: "Due to firing, shelling from across the border areas of Uri about 500 people migrated to safer areas. 

"Deputy Commissioner, Senior Superintendent of Police were on the spot looking after the people," he added.

The Pakistani Army has been violating the bilateral ceasefire agreement on the LoC with impunity since the beginning of 2018.
