ISLAMABAD: At least two civilians including a woman were killed and four others injured when Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing across the Line of Control (LoC) on Monday, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

The casualties were caused when Indian forces targeted the civilian population in Chakothi sector of Jhelum Valley district along the LoC. “Pakistan army troops responded effectively [by] targeting [the] Indian post which initiated [the] fire,” the ISPR statement added.

The dead were identified as Noushad Bibi, a resident of Soka village, and Ghulam Hussain, who lived in Bakot village. Four people identified as Raja Mehmood (r/o Darang More), Zahida Bibi (r/o Bari Bhaik), Ghulam Muhammad and Muhammad Zakir (r/o Bakot village) sustained injuries in the firing.
