Indian army claims Pakistani troops fire across LoC; three civilians killed
[Dawn] The Indian army says Pak troops have fired across their disputed frontier in the Himalayan region of Kashmire, killing three civilians.
That was, naturally, covering fire for infiltrators...
Indian military front man Col. Brijesh Pandey said Pak forces fired mortars into the Uri sector in Indian-administered Kashmire on Tuesday.
A shell hit a house close to the military line dividing Kashmire between the countries, killing a man and two teenagers, including a girl, Pandey said.
There was no independent confirmation of the incident.
Indian troops did not retaliate and have accused Pakistain of violating a 2003 cease-fire accord. Though the cease-fire has been holding, there have been isolated shooting incidents.
