MUZAFFARABAD: At least two persons were killed and a woman was injured when Indian troops targeted a funeral in a border village of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) from across the Line of Control (LoC) on Thursday.

The incident occurred in Polas Kakuta village in the Abbaspur sector of Poonch district at about 4pm when people were busy in burial rites of a fellow villager, Abbaspur police official Anjum Saleem said.

“Indian troops resorted to shelling without any provocation, targeting people in the local burial ground and as a result two mourners embraced martyrdom,” he said.
Afzal Kiani, a lawyer in Abbaspur, said that the villagers had just lowered the body in the grave when the shelling began. “People tried to take shelter behind trees but nevertheless two of them lost their lives after being hit by splinters from the mortar shells,” he said.
