The Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR) said in a press release issued from Rawalpindi: "Indian troops resorted to unprovoked fire using heavy weapons, including mortars, along the LoC in Lepa Valley and deliberately targeted the civilian population. Four innocent citizens, including two women and a child, were injured," it said.
In recent days, unprovoked shelling by Indian troops has been a routine. In Indian firing in Satwal Sector along the LoC a few days ago, a man was injured seriously. The injured man was identified as Muhammad Safeer, 45, according to the Foreign Office spokesperson.
In January, a woman was injured in unprovoked shelling by the Indian border forces in Azad Kashmir. ISPR said in a statement that India deliberately targeted the civilian population in Chirikot Sector. "A 21-year-old woman, resident of Serian Village, sustained serious injuries and was evacuated to a nearby medical facility," said a statement issued by the ISPR.
