200,000 evacuated as India-Pakistan conflict looms over Kashmir

Tensions in the border regions between India and Pakistan are escalating quickly as more than 1,000 villages are being evacuated over the security situation. Over 200,000 people residing in villages within 10km from the border in the Indian state of Punjab are thought to have been moved to secure locations.

Villagers were seen fleeing their areas as schools and other public places have also been shut to accommodate the evacuees. The security situation in bordering states on the Indian side such as Punjab, Rajasthan and Kashmir has been revised and kept at a heightened level. Air force units positioned in bases near the western border are also on alert. Army satellites and radar systems are thought to be constantly monitoring the region.
