Two civilians killed in Indian troops across LoC firing in Chamb sector

Nine civilians injured in Azad Kashmir after Indian forces open fire

RAWALPINDI: At least two men were killed and a woman and her teenage son wounded in Indian troops firing from across the Line of Control (LoC) in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) on Thursday, officials said.
“There has been heavy shelling in Chamb sector since 6am and according to initial reports two civilians have been killed and two others injured,” said Chaudhry Guftar, deputy commissioner of Bhimber district.
Chamb sector is located in Barnala tehsil of Bhimber, the southernmost AJK district which runs along the heavily militarised LoC splitting the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir between Pakistan and India.
Guftar said that since the affected areas did not have cellular service, exact information about losses could be ascertained only after a physical visit once the firing came to an end.
