ISLAMABAD, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) — Pakistan’s army said Saturday that Indian forces have killed a woman along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Kashmir region, the second incident of cross-border firing in three days.
“Indian troops carried out unprovoked deliberate firing on civilian population in Bhimber Sector. Resultantly lady Munazza Bibi embraced Shahdat (martyrdom),” an army statement said.
“Pakistani troops engaged Indian posts,” the statement from the army’s media wing, the Inter-Services Public Relations, said.
It is the second incident of the cross-border firing in three days.
Pakistan said Thursday that Indian forces killed an 18-year old innocent civilian in Bijildar village along the LoC.
Pakistan and India had declared ceasefire along the LoC and the Working Boundary in 2003. Both, however, routinely accuse each other of violating the ceasefire.
