ISLAMABAD – Senior military official on Sunday accused Indian troops of killing a civilian and wounding four others in unprovoked firing across the border in its eastern province of Punjab.
The officials said the latest firing came from an area in the south of the Indian-held Jammu Kashmir, facing the district of Sialkot. “A civilian embraced martyrdom and four others were wounded when India’s Border Security Force (BSF) resorted to unprovoked firing in Charwa and Harpal sectors overnight and today,” a senior military official told AFP.
Pakistan Rangers effectively responded to Indian BSF fire near Sialkot, the official said on condition of anonymity. Earlier this month, Indian police accused the Pakistan Army of killing a soldier and injuring seven others during firing along the border in the same region.
