After two nights of horror, border residents migrate
As one enters the border villages, locked doors can be seen and an eerie silence prevails that is punctuated by the sporadic noise of bullets or mortar bombs.
"We spent the past two nights in <g data-gr-id="19">horror,</g> when bombs fired from the Pakistani side landed on our houses and in our front yards.
"We thought that it might pass away, but today we decided to move out and shift to <g data-gr-id="22">safer</g> place", Bhushan Kumar, a resident of Korotana Khurd village, said.
Most of the houses in this village have been abandoned as the residents have migrated to safer places to save themselves from the ceasefire violation from the Pakistani side.
Even as the community bunkers made by the government have become a second home for a large number of border residents a large number have preferred to migrate to safer places, including the houses of their relatives.
"While <g data-gr-id="23">majority</g> of the villagers have left for safer locations, one or two men have stayed back in every village so as to provide fodder <g data-gr-id="18">to</g> the cattle.
"We are risking our lives to feed our cattle", Vikram Singh, a resident of Budhipur village, <g data-gr-id="20">said. .</g>
