Senior citizen killed in Indian firing at Line of Control – ISPR
ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN –
Unprovoked firing by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) at the Rawalakot Sector of Line of Control (LoC) on Saturday killed a Pakistani senior citizen, says a statement by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
“A sixty-year-old civilian Muhammad Aslam, resident of Polas village, was cutting grass and wood one hundred to 150 metres inside the LoC in AJK when he came under Indian firing and embraced martyrdom,” read the statement.
ISPR added that Pakistani forces befittingly retaliated to the Indian aggression.
India has repeatedly violated the LoC ceasefire between the two countries, causing casualties and straining ties between the neighbours who have fought three wars since 1947.
Both countries claim the Himalayan territory of Kashmir which has been divided between them by LoC; a United Nations monitored de facto border.
