Massive stone pelting clash took place between youth and security forces at Janglaat Mandi, Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir.
“We can’t say if the ceasefire is success or failure in black or white terms. There were major challenges. Militants haven’t agreed to the ceasefire, attacks on security forces haven’t gone down. Pakistan’s carrying out infiltration and ceasefire violations are some downsides,” said Lieutenant General (retd) DS. Hooda.
