Indian fire kills Pakistani: Police

11 December, 2012

MUZAFFARABAD: Cross-border fire from Indian troops has killed a man and injured three other civilians in two Pakistani villages, local officials said on Monday.

The shooting was reported along the line of control (LoC), the de facto border that separates Indian-held and Pakistani-administered zones in the Himalayan region of Kashmir.

The nuclear-armed neighbours have observed a ceasefire in Kashmir since November 2003, despite sporadic small-time clashes and accusations of violations from both sides. "A civilian was killed and three others, two women and one man, were wounded in firing by Indian troops in Madarpur village on the LoC on late Sunday," local government official Sardar Khalil Ahmed told AFP.

A house in the Pakistani village of Battal also caught fire after shells exploded and investigators have been sent to assess further damage in the remote mountainous area, he added.
