RAWALPINDI: Four civilians were martyred and 10 injured when Indian forces opened unprovoked fire on a border village across the Working Boundary in Sialkot.
The Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), the army’s media wing, said on Friday that the martyred include one woman and three children.
The ISPR stated further that the Punjab Rangers conducted retaliatory fire, and an exchange of fire is taking place intermittently.
Indian forces frequently conduct cross-border violations along with Working Boundary as well as in Kashmir across the Line of Control, resulting in the deaths of innocent civilians.
On April 28, Pakistan’s Director General Military Operations (DGMO) has taken up the issue of continuing ceasefire violations by Indian army in a hotline contact with his Indian counterpart.
The ISPR said that Pakistan’s DGMO Maj Gen Shamshad Mirza highlighted deliberate targetting of innocent civilians residing along the LoC and Working Boundary by Indian forces, on the false pretext of reaction against alleged cross-border infiltration.
