Indian shelling kills boy
08 October, 2013
KOTLI: A young boy was killed by Indian troops' unprovoked and indiscriminate shelling across the border here on Monday.
According to official sources, Saad Fayyaz, 13, was playing in the compound of his house when he was killed by the Indian firing. He was buried in his native town, Rad Kathar, Goi. On October 4, four people were injured in the Kotli area because of Indian shelling on the Line of Control.
During their meeting in New York on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly last week the prime ministers of the two countries had agreed on a ceasefire on the LoC. Several people, including army personnel and civilians, have been killed on both sides of the disputed border in recent months. Two civilians were injured on Sunday when Indian forces fired from across the Line of Control in Battal Sector of Azad Kashmir.
The Pakistan Army retaliated to Indian firing after which both sides ceased fire. This is another incident of continued violence between the two countries along the Line of Control.
