Srinagar: An eight-month-old infant was killed late last night after being hit by a bullet during cross border firing by Indian and Pakistani troops in Jammu and Kashmir’s Keri Battal area of Akhnoor.
The incident took place when the eight-month-old was sleeping with his family outside their home in Pallanwala sector.
