MUZAFFARABAD: The Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) cabinet on Tuesday granted approval to amendments in a law to ensure enhanced compensation for loss of lives and moveable and immovable properties in Indian shelling from across the Line of Control (LoC).

The amendments to the AJK Ceasefire Line Incidents Relief Act were approved in the light of the recommendations made by a committee headed by Minister for Communication and Works Chaudhry Mohammad Aziz and comprising Minister for Revenue Sardar Farooq Sikandar and senior member of Board of Revenue Fayyaz Ali Abbasi.
