SIALKOT- A Pakistani civilian was injured on Sunday when Indian Border Security Forces (BSF) resorted to unprovoked firing on a Pakistan Rangers’ posts in Charwal sector near the Sialkot working boundary, military sources said.
Pakistani forces responded to the shots as an intermittent exchange of fire took place with the use of heavy weapons along the working boundary. There were also some reports that firing from across the boundary killed several livestock and destroyed some buildings in the incident.
A day earlier, at least three Pakistanis including a woman were killed and 11 others were injured in Indian firing on villages along the Sialkot Working Boundary. The villages which were fired upon were Bajrah Garhi, Khadraal, Anula, Beeni, Sucheetgarh and Charwah. Officials accused Indian forces of targeting the civilian population with mortar shells and light and heavy machine guns.
Separately, Indian media reported that Pakistani troops allegedly targeted at least 25 Border Security Force (BSF) posts in Jammu and Kashmir last night. The incident comes days after Narendra Modi accused Pakistan of waging a proxy war in Kashmir as he visited the town of Kargil to inaugurate two hydropower stations in nearby Leh and Kargil. During a period of one month, this is the 25th time that Indian forces have violated Line of Control (LoC) ceasefire.
