RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Army on Friday termed Indian claim of killing seven soldiers at the border in Shakargarh Sector along the working boundary and Line of Control (LoC) as absolutely fake.

“Indian claim of hitting or killing any Pakistani soldier/Ranger with firing at anytime of today at Line of Control (LOC)/working boundary absolutely false,” Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lieutenant General Asim Saleem Bajwa said in a tweet.

 

Pakistani and Indian border forces troops had exchanged fire across the Working Boundary in Shakargarh sector on Friday.

A statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) yesterday also confirmed there was no loss of life on the Pakistani side in the skirmish which took place from 9-9:30 AM near the village of Chak Amru in Punjab.

Tensions between the two arch rivals have been boiling since the Indian government accused Pakistan of supporting an assault on an army base in the held Kashmir that killed 18 soldiers.

Occasional violations of a 2003 ceasefire between the nuclear-armed rivals are not uncommon. The last was reported on October 19 that killed a civilian during another episode of firing across the Line of Control (LoC).

The Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh was called upon at the foreign office on Thursday to lodge a strong protest.
