Army soldier killed in Pakistan firing at LoC along Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch

An Army jawan was killed and four others injured in unprovoked firing by Pakistan along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, officials said, according to PTI.

Violating ceasefire, firing started from Pakistan side in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch around 11 am. Pakistan fired with small arms and mortars, ‘Indian army replied befittingly’, officials said.

Pakistan had last week alleged that Indian forces had killed three of its soldiers and summoned India’s deputy high commissioner, Gaurav Ahluwalia, to protest the alleged ceasefire violations.

Director general (South Asia and SAARC) Mohammad Faisal, who is also the foreign ministry spokesperson, summoned Ahluwalia and “condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian forces on 15th August in Lipa and Battal Sectors”, the Foreign Office said in a statement.
