Boy killed, 5 injured as Pakistan violates ceasefire

Kashmir issue

On Saturday, Pakistan had said two civilians died in Indian shelling in Rakhchakri village of Rawalkote, opposite Poonch.

An Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement issued here said that Pakistan Army troops effectively engaged the Indian posts, which were targeting civil population.

Kashmir, the Himalayan region divided between India and Pakistan, is claimed by both in full.

The incident took place on Monday morning along the Line of Control. The writer is reluctant to meandering into security considerations such as securing rivers' water or highlighting the presence of over half million Indian troops in Indian-occupied Kashmir.




A police spokesman said Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked and heavy firing and shelling from across the border in Dhigwar, Kerni and Shahpur sectors around 0650 hours.

New Delhi has said Pakistan initiates cross-border firing to help anti-India rebels cross into Indian-administered Kashmir to launch attacks.

Officials said Pakistani shells landed in five villages, all around 3km from the LoC, triggering panic among residents. Two soldiers were also injured in another such firing and one army vehicle underwent severe damage. Three people were killed in the firing which included two minors- a 15-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy.

India has said that it carried out a surgical strike on terrorist sites in Pakistan-held territory in September past year after a terrorist attack in the Uri sector of Kashmir that killed 18 Indian soldiers.
