Pakistani military claims firing by Indian troops
Islamabad: The Pakistani military on Saturday claimed Indian forces had fired across the border in Sialkot region of Punjab province though there were no reports of casualties.
"India`s Border Security Force resorted to unprovoked firing on the boundary near Sialkot this evening," said chief military spokesman Maj Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa.
He said no loss to forces or civilians had been reported. Pakistani troops responded "effectively" to the firing, he said.
The allegation came hours after the reported killing of a Pakistani soldier and injury to another due to firing across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan condemned the killing and asked India to investigate the incident.
