3 border points on LoC operational: Pranab

October 25, 2005 18:39 IST

India on Tuesday said three border points on the Line of Control, Teetwal in Tangdhar, Aman Setu in Uri sector and Chakan Da Bagh in Poonch are 'operational' to provide relief to the quake-hit people of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

"The three points have become operational for providing relief to people from across the LOC," Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee said.

"Whosoever is in a position to come across will receive medical treatment and relief material," he said on the sidelines of the 24th Coast Guard Commanders meeting.

He also acknowledged that adequate number of people were not available to take advantage of the relief offer yet.

Officials from both countries are meeting in Islamabad on October 29 to discuss modalities of opening points along the LOC for relief.
