The Hindu report had stated that in September last year,  70-year old Reshma Bi, left the village of Charonda, near Uri, to live with her sons and grandchildren across the Line of Control.



The report had stated that after the flight across the LoC came to the notice of Uri-headquartered 19 infantry brigade, troops of 9 Maratha Light Infantry began constructing observation bunkers  around Charonda, located close to the Line of control, outside the three layer fencing which runs along the LoC.

The Hindu report had said that the construction work — barred by the terms of the Line of Control ceasefire which India and Pakistan agreed to in 2003 — provoked furious protests from Pakistani troops.
