Pakistan accuses Indian army of killing four Pakistani soldiers

A 6-year-old girl and Indian soldier reportedly lost their lives in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Balakote sector of Poonch, Jammu and Kashmir. On Saturday, an Indian Army jawan was killed in cross-border firing across the LoC by Pakistani Army in Rajouri sector.

Meanwhile, a DGMO-level talk was held between India and Pakistan.

In May India accused Pakistani forces of killing two soldiers patrolling the LoC and mutilating their bodies.

The Indian Army retaliated, triggering heavy exchanges.

At the meeting, Pakistan alleged that the Indian Army is targeting its troops which recently resulted in the death of four of its soldiers in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir.

The Indian Army retaliated "strongly and effectively", Mehta said.

They stated the DGMO as saying that the Pakistan Army has the right to respond to Indian aggression.

At least nine people were killed and seven others wounded last November when cross-border fire hit a passenger bus in the village of Nagdar in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

A senior district official of Rajouri told PTI that two civilians were injured in shelling in Manjakote belt of Rajouri district and have been hospitalised.

The (targeted) vehicle fell in to the Neelum River.

The Indian Army also emphasised on the "trend of infiltration along the LoC continued with the active support of Pakistan forward posts".

According to a statement by the ISPR, hotline contact was established between the Director General of Military Operations of both India and Pakistan.
