Our house’s roof was damaged,” Lal, who along with his wife and two daughters was living in the house, said.Rattan Chand of Karol Matra said that they are living in the shadow of death as Pakistan Rangers have been shelling forward areas almost every day.“If such a situation continues, we will be forced to migrate from border hamlets to safer places”, Chand said.Karan Kumar, a block development committee (BDC) chairman, said that several houses and other structures have suffered damages but the government is yet to compensate people.“Firing and shelling has become a regular feature.
