RAWALPINDI: A Pakistani soldier was martyred and two civilians injured after Indian troops resorted to "unprovoked" firing from across the Line of Control in Baroh and Chirikot sectors, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Thursday.

According to ISPR, Sepoy Naimat Wali embraced shahadat, while two women in Serian village got injured.

“Pakistan Army troops targeted Indian Army posts in response. Post substantially damaged. Reports of casualties to Indian troops,” the military's media wing added. 

On Tuesday, Pakistan summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner to protest the unprovoked ceasefire violations by Indian forces along LoC after one civilian was killed and three others injured.

Pakistan said the deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas was deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights, and humanitarian laws.

On September 14, a Pakistan Army soldier and civilian were martyred after Indian troops resorted to "unprovoked" firing from across LoC in different sectors. 

Havaldar Nasir Hussain, who hailed from Narowal in Punjab embraced shahadat, while six civilians, including four women, were wounded in Indian firing in Nakial and Jandrot sectors.
