RAWALPINDI: India’s Border Security Force (BSF) once again resorted to ‘unprovoked’ firing at the Line of Control (LoC), officials said on Friday. “Indian troops resorted to unprovoked heavy weapons and small arms firing on the Line of Control in Battal sector last evening,” state media reported, quoting the ISPR.
According to ISPR, Pakistani troops befittingly responded to Indian shelling and firing.
Earlier this week, a civilian was critically injured as a result of unprovoked firing by Indian forces on LoC in the Chirikot sector. He later succumbed to his injuries at the Combined Military Hospital. Both sides have exchanged gunfire this month with four people killed on the Pakistani side by the Indian border security force. Five more have been left injured by the attacks from across the border.
