End of the Tour

Clashes flared along the 740-km (445-mile) Line of Control that divides Kashmir on August 6 when five Indian soldiers were ambushed and killed in the Poonch region. New Delhi blamed the attack on the Pakistan army. Islamabad denied involvement.

While tit-for-tat shelling and machinegun fire are common along the LoC the current round of fighting is one of the most intense since a ceasefire signed in 2003. It has been linked to protests in both countries and rowdy scenes in India's parliament. Under pressure from opposition politicians, the government has hinted at retaliation.

On Monday, a Pakistani army official said a civilian was killed as a result of "unprovoked Indian shelling" in the Battal, Chirikot and Satwal sectors.

"Pakistan troops effectively responded to Indian firing," the official said.

Islamabad summoned India's deputy high commissioner (ambassador) to Pakistan to register its concern over the death, the Pakistani foreign office said. It also called for strengthening military mechanisms to stop truce violations.

A spokesman for the Indian Defence Ministry offered a different version of events on the Kashmir frontier. He said Indian posts came under heavy mortar and automatic weapon fire overnight in the same area and that India "responded effectively." He said no damage or injuries were reported on the Indian side.

Srinagar is a city of surviving artifacts from the past which reflects onto the variation in the seasons. Come spring and the world of ice breathes life with air smelling of flowers that have just blossomed.

Not much is known about the origin of Pahalgam. However, during the medieval period, the region was ruled by the Mughals. During the latter half of the 15th century Kashmir was ruled by Mirza Muhammad Haidar Dughlat on behalf of Emperor Humayun. It remained a part of the Mughal Empire for a long time. Later, it became part of the Kingdom of Kashmir.

Pahalgam remained a part of princely state of Kashmir till it merged with India in 1947.
