National Investigation Agency (NIA) on January 07 carried out raids at six locations in Jammu and Kashmir in connection with narcotics and weapons case that the anti-terror probe agency had registered in 2020. Details and name of location and people involved were not shared by the NIA.
Ceasefire violation was initiated by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district on January 16. Regular shelling has been a major problem for the locals. People living in the Balakot sector urged government to not concentrate on elections instead on the people living here. One of the locals said, "The Central government has given the full emphasis on elections, but elections will not resolve people's problems. People want roads, bunkers, they are disturbed due to the regular shelling activities. The emphasis should not be on elections instead authorities should think about the people living here."
