The Pakistani and India forces exchanged heavy fire across the Line of Control (LoC) that divides the disputed Kashmir between the two countries.

An Indian Police Officer, Shri Ram Ambarkar, said Sunday that the heavy shelling from the Pakistani side of LoC, killed 3 civilians including a woman and a child.

Abarkar further added that the shells fired by the Pakistani military, landed in Kupwara area of the Indian-administered Kashmir, which also wounded many others.

Meanwhile, the Pakistani military in a statement said “Indian Army troops in total disregard to ceasefire agreement & international conventions initiated unprovoked ceasefire violations along LOC deliberately targeting civilian population in Baroh, Dhudnial, Rakhchikri and Chirikot Sectors.”

“Pakistan Army troops effectively responded and targeted those Indian posts which initiated fire,” the statement said, adding that “Due to indiscriminate Indian fire of heavy weapons and mortars, a two years old minor Muhammad Haseeb in Dhudnial Sector, embraced shahadat while 4 citizens including a woman and 72 years old senior citizen in Baroh, Rakhchikri and Chirikot Sectors sustained serious injuries.”
