Pakistani civilian injured in indiscriminate firing by Indian troops along LoC

Babar Hussain, a resident of Mehtika village, was injured “due to indiscriminate fire of Indian troops” along the Line of Control on Tuesday.

The ceasefire violation occurred in Bagsar sector along the LoC, with Indian Army troops targeting civilian population.

In 2020 alone, India has committed 1,296 ceasefire violations which led to the martyrdom of seven civilians and injury to 98.

On June 9, the Indian Army had resorted to unprovoked firing in Jandrot sector along the LoC which had left four civilians injured.

According to a statement by the Foreign Office, 26-year-old Nasreen Akhtar, 24-year-old Rabia, and two 7-year-old kids Momina and Munshi were critically injured in the Dera Sher Khan, Sandhara, and Bamroch villages.

A day later, a senior Indian diplomat was summoned to register “a strong protest” against the ceasefire violations, said the statement.

“The Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) have continuously been targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons,” said the statement.
