3 injured in Indian firing along LoC

When Pakistan and India were on the brink of war last year

Three civilians, including a young girl, were killed in Pakistan shelling in Jhangar area of Nowshera while 10 people, including four soldiers, were injured.

India blames Pakistan for patronizing terrorists in some of its areas but Pakistan has always refuted such claims.

Sources said a civilian identified as Haroon Rashid, 22 of village Dabraj of Sagra in Mankote sector sustained splinter injuries after mortar shell exploded near him. "A head constable from Border Security Force was also injured in the attack", defence ministry spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta said.

The reports said there has been firing along the LoC in Balnoi and Mankote sectors too.

Indian troops last week said they attacked and damaged Pakistani army posts in Kashmir to prevent what they called infiltration by fighters from the Pakistani side, but Pakistan denied the claim.

"One civil GREF labour was martyred, and one GREF driver injured in ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops".

On 17 May, Pakistan Army had fired on forward posts along the LoC in Balakote sector in Rajouri district.

A police spokesman said acting on a specific information about presence of militants, police, paramilitary CRPF and army men launched a search operation at Mir Mohalla, Natipora area of Sopore this morning.

The Pakistani army released a counter video showing Indian bunkers being razed in the Pakistani shelling.

Earlier, on Thursday, Pakistani troops violated ceasefire and killed General Reserve Engineering Force personnel in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district.
