Poonch, Rajouri to get 400 more bunkers



In view of heightened border tensions, the Jammu and Kashmir government on Saturday sanctioned 400 additional bunkers for civilians living in Poonch and Rajouri districts.

Two hundred bunkers will be built in each district within one month, said an official statement. 

Funds for constructing bunkers would be provided to the District Development Commissioners through the Rural Development Department.

Bunkers have been effective in providing safe shelter to the residents living in the border areas during cross-shelling incidents. - IANS
