Pakistan Army’s Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) has claimed that three soldiers died during unprovoked firing by India at Line of Control.
The soldiers were identified as Captain Taimoor Ali Khan, Havaldar Mushtaq Hussain and Lance Naik Ghulam Hussain.
Stating that Pakistan deserves the right to respond, ISPR said that seven Indian soldiers have been confirmed dead in retaliatory fire.
A statement by ISPR claimed,”It may be mentioned here that in order to distract attention from the real issue of atrocities in India-held Kashmir by Indian troops, they are now targeting civilians population across the LoC towards the Pakistan side.”
Earlier in the day, it was reported that Indian troops targeted a passenger bus near the LoC, killing nine people and injuring 11 others in Lawat.
This incident happened just a day after Indian army claimed three of its soldiers were killed by Pakistani troops and further threatened retribution.
Though Indian army claimed that one of the soldiers body was mutilated, Pakistan denied it saying such reports are fabricated.
