Islamabad: The Pakistan Army today claimed one of its soldiers was killed in firing by Indian troops on the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir.

A senior military official said the latest casualty occurred in Rakhcahri sector of the LoC near Rawalakot.

"Sepoy Habib (was killed) due to unprovoked firing," the official said on condition of anonymity.

Yesterday, an army captain was killed in shelling by Indian troops. Pakistan protested the incident by summoning the Indian Deputy High Commissioner to the Foreign Office.

The latest death was reported shortly after the lower house of Pakistan`s parliament passed a resolution that deplored the death of the captain as an "act of aggression" and called for a "constructive" engagement with India.
