On Thursday, Sepoy Naimat Wali embraced martyrdom and two women in Serian Village were injured as Indian forces violated ceasefire in Baroh and Chirikot sectors along Line of Control (LoC).
According to a press release issued by ISPR, Indian forces violated ceasefire and in response, Army troops targeted Indian army posts which were “substantially damaged”.
ISPR added that there were reports of casualties of Indian troops.
In a previous ceasefire violation by Indian troops from across ths LoC on Wednesday, two civilians had been injured in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK). A day earlier, the Foreign Office (FO) had summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia to record a strong protest against the “unprovoked ceasefire violations” by Indian forces along the LoC on Oct 6 and 7.
The LoC violations come as tensions remain high between India and Pakistan over the former’s move to revoke occupied Kashmir’s special autonomy on August 5.
