India has published up to 0.2 million cusecs of water into the Sutlej River in its recent act of aggression against Pakistan without notifying the appropriate officials.
In the next 12 to 24 hours, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) advised that at least 150,000 to 200,000 cusecs of water from the Indian state of Punjab will spill into Ganda Singh Wala–a village in Pakistan near Kasur on the border.
India also opened three out of five Ladakh Dam spillways that could result in flooding in neighboring villages, the NDMA added.
In perspective of the flood alert, it was recommended that the Kasur administration and other districts on the bank of the River Sutlej initiate the required steps to deal with any emergency.
India has, meanwhile, continued to resort to violations along the Control Line. In the latest unprovoked firing by Indian troops along the LoC on Sunday, two Pakistani civilians were martyred.
The Indian Army “targeted the civilian population alongside the LOC with mortars and Anti-Tank Guided Missiles in the Hot Spring Sector,” the ISPR said in a statement.
The Pakistan Army reportedly murdered two Indian Army soldiers in retaliatory fire and wounded many others.
