MUZAFFARABAD: At least five people were injured on Saturday after the Indian security forces once again targeted civilian population residing along the Line of Control (LoC) with small and heavy weapons without any provocation from the Pakistani side.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the incidents took place in Leepa and Bagsar sectors.

The Indian forces used heavy calibre weapons, evoking a befitting response from the Pakistani security forces, the statement further said.
