Jammu Kashmir: Pak initiates unprovoked firing on Indian Army posts, soldier martyred

An army jawan was killed as Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked firing on Indian posts along the Line of Control in Krishna Ghati sector in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir this evening, a defence spokesman said.

An army spokesperson said Pakistani forces resorted to "unprovoked firing" on an Indian army post in KG sector around 5pm. "The Indian positions are effectively retaliating".

The soldier has been identified as Nb Sub Jagram Singh Tomar, who got grievously injured during the exchange of fire and succumbed to his injuries.

The official said due to heavy firing and mortar shelling by Pakistani troops, the residents living close to the LoC in Balakote sector could not take refuge in underground bunkers.

Someone tell me why I was ousted. "I would not allow anyone to trample your right to elect leaders of choice", Sharif said. He also criticised PML-N's GT Road "homecoming rally" saying no senior leader of the ruling party took part in it.

A police officer, while giving details about the incident, said at around 5:20 am, mortar shells fired from across the border exploded near the house of one Mohammad Shabir in the village, killing his wife Raqia Bi.

"They remained confined to their homes and once the firing and shelling subsided, they moved to underground bunkers for safety", he said.

The fresh cross-LoC firing and shelling once again caused fear and panic among the border dwellers.
