4 including a woman killed by Indian firing along LoC

At least four people were killed, including a woman, and six were injured by Indian forces firing in different sectors along the Line of Control (LoC) on Monday.

Casualties occurred in different villages of Nakyal sector which has been experiencing indiscriminate shelling for the past several days.

“Indian troops have yet again resorted to unprovoked firing along the Line of Control in Nakyal, Jandrot and Kel sectors,” said a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

The ISPR statement added that Pakistani troops “befittingly responded the firing and targeted Indian posts”.

Jandrot is located in Kotli district while Kel lies in the upper belt of Neelum valley, northeast of Muzaffarabad.

A government official from Nakyal told media that there had been intense shelling since 8am, with Indian troops using both small and heavy arms.

Zeeshan Nisar, assistant commissioner Nakyal, also confirmed that three men and a women were killed by Indian fire.

“Since the shelling is continuing, we are unable to instantly collect all details, I am afraid there might be more casualties,” said Nisar.

“The shelling is so intense that you cannot even imagine. There has been no let up in the shelling since morning,” said Javed Budhanvi, a former AJK minister.
