ISLAMABAD: Heavy Indian shelling along the working boundary in Sialkot on Monday evening left at least four Pakistanis, inlcuding a woman, dead.

As many as four people were also injured in Indian firing in Sukhmaal, Bheke Chak and Bhurey Chak villages in Zafarwal and Shakargarh sectors. Meanwhile, retaliatory fire from Rangers killed at least one Indian soldier.

According to the ISPR, Azeem, 18, from Bore Chak and a woman from Sukhmal village in Zafarwal sector were killed before two more civillians were killed as Indian firing continued late into the night.

Pakistani troops are befittingly responding to the Indian aggression and targeting the BSF positions from where are firing on Pakistani territory. One Indian soldier was reportedly killed due to Pakistani firing.

Reports suggest the exchange of gunfire is still going on.

This is the sixth time in the past six days that Indian troops have targeted civilian population along the working boundary.

Indian troops have reportedly suffered heavy losses in the exchange of fire, said ISPR.

    There is nothing new. India has been playing this ‘infiltration and ceasefire’ drama since clinton and bush’s times. Now Obama is to visit India and she is continuously perpetrating such dramas to show to uncle sam how bad Pakistan is. India’s national security adviser has rightly said about India being Pakistan’s sworn enemy.

    The Environmental Consequences of India’s Growth Model
    January 03, 2015
    The Diplomat
    India is in a peculiar position today. Not in terms of “harnessing its demographic dividend” – as an economist might put it, given that more than half of the country’s population is below the age of 25 – but in terms of its memory and future. Its under 25 population has no direct memory of the Emergency or the Bhopal Disaster, including your correspondent.
    According to the UN, 60 million people living in arid zones could migrate by 2020. Rising sea levels will displace millions of people. India may soon be faced not only with its own domestic issues, but also with climate change issues arising in Bangladesh or Maldives.
    Stéphane Hallegate, one of the authors of the IPCC report, considers a scenario in Philippe Squarzoni’s graphic novel Climate Changed. It is 2060, and 20 million Bangladeshis have been forced to leave their country and head for India. Can we conceive of the consequences of that? Or take another example, a one meter rise in sea level, which will swallow up 3.7 million acres of arable land on the Ganges plain, forcing residents from Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, and Bihar south into, say, Maharashtra. Could India accommodate this?
    Capitalism encourages an individualistic society. In its pursuit of capitalism, India could simply decide not to talk about the environmental costs, ignoring nature’s logic. But if a capitalist India cannot develop a collective responsibility to nature, cannot make the future a stakeholder in today’s policy, then nature will eventually exact its price. All Indians can hope for is that that day does not come soon.

    @abreez:
    This comment has nothing to do with the story above. Just proves how negative you guys are. Come out of it. Care about the poverty in your own land. Even the developed economies like us and canada have beggars and poors in it. Ask Indians are working hard to come out of poverty but you guys don’t want to come out of your stupid analysis. Its better to keep shut than open your mouth and prove that you are a fool.

    Now it is confirmed India doesnt want Pakistan to defeat Taliban…They want to divert Pakistan’s attention….Pakistan should retaliate very hard
    Mr Dougal (National Security Adviser of India) said” India should use take advantage of issue btw Taliban and Pakistan…Give them more money,high technology and if Pakistan spends 1200 crores on Taliban we should spend 1600 crores..If 1 Mumbai type attack take place in future Pakistan will loose Baluchistan”….It means that India has a role in Baluchistan issue…
    If anyone thinks especially Indian Troll plz go on youtube and see video..He is addressing in a university…
    Chuck Hagel(Former Defence Secretary) said ”India has always used Afghanistan as a ground to trouble Pakistan”He said 2 years back
    If u dont believe in what Pakistan says so believe US…..
    Modi playing Game of Thrones….Funding TTP and then expressing grief on twitter when attack takes place in Pakistan…..
    India will be hardly hit as Taliban will be a history and now after Karzai their hold in Afghanistan is getting less as Ghani refused to take military aid from them….
    So India used firings as to divert Pakistan attention from Taliban..Cross border firings done in October and then 2 major attacks in Lahore and Peshawar took place……

    Pakistan has currently no reason to fire as It is already in a state of War with Taliban

    India lie exposed as Indian media said heavy firing was done by Pakistan on 31st Dec and India Minister external affairs said only a sniper was shot which killed BSF constable..Sniper can be shot from anywhere…A fabricated story…Pakistan need to get serious and give huge retaliation and there is no news as of now on TOI that Pakistan has done firings its India who has done this brutal act like always

    Pakistani media is providing incomplete and inaccurate news. India has vacated several villages in the Samba sector because of Pakistani firing. Both sides are accusing each other. The truth has become a major casualty. But NDTV is giving a slightly balanced version.
    A better headline would be “LoC violations by both sides continue unabated”.

    @abreez: All kinds of unpredictable things can happen anywhere on this planet if we play with Mother Nature. How does sea level rise affect inland areas like Uttar Pradesh? I think the rise of population (200 million in UP) is the problem. Are you sure Pakistan will be spared in this scenario? How about China which has less arable land? The talk of “demographic dividend” has been and will always be a nonsensical concept, in the face of the huge environmental damage the human species is causing through overpopulation and overconsumption! (The Sahara desert – size of the US – was once green.)
