The village with a population of a little over 12,000 people has been bearing the brunt of cross-fire between nuclear rivals India and Pakistan. Last week a Pakistan solider was killed across the Line of Control (LOC), a military line that divides Indian-administered Kashmir from the Pakistan-administered Kashmir at this village. People living along the LoC have continually been at risk due to hostility between the armies of the two rival nations. Last year, in November, three people, including a pregnant woman, had died after a shell fired from Pakistan landed on one of the houses in the village. Tension between Pakistan and India has escalated after a fresh skimirish along the border. Both countries have summoned each other's envoy to protest against unacceptable and unprovoked' attacks.
