Srinagar: Pakistani media Thursday reported that fresh cross LoC firing between Indian and Pakistani troops along the LoC left two civilians dead and a woman and her teenage son wounded in Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK).
“There has been heavy shelling in Chamb sector since 6am and according to initial reports two civilians have been killed and two others injured,” Pak media reports said quoting officials.
Chamb sector is located in Barnala tehsil of Bhimber, the southernmost PaK district which runs along the heavily militarised LoC.
As per reports since the affected areas did not have cellular service, exact information about losses could be ascertained only after a physical visit once the firing comes to an end.
Reports have identified the dead as Rafique, son of Sharif, and Wazir, son of Allah Rakha and the injured as Jannat Bibi and her teenage son Mohammad Usman.
