RAWALPINDI: The Indian troops on Friday resorted to unprovoked fire along the Line of Control (LoC) yet another act of aggression and critically injured an 18-year-old girl in Chirikot Sector.
According to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the Indian army deliberately targeted the civilian population. “Due to indiscriminate fire of automatics and mortars in Polas village, an 18-year-old girl named Ansa Siddique suffered critical injuries,” the ISPR added.
It further said that the Pakistan Army responded effectively and targeted those Indian posts which had initiated the firing.
Indian forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-calibre mortars and automatic weapons.
