20-year-old AJK student martyred in ‘unprovoked’ cross border firing by India
A young student lost his life in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) on Wednesday in an ‘unprovoked’ ceasefire violation from across the Line of Control (LoC) by Indian forces, civil and military officials said.
Umar Subhani, a 20-year-old BSc student, was said to be preparing iftar in the courtyard of his house in Danna Baroh village when Indian troops shot him with small arms fire, said Mubashar Mushtaq, a disaster management officer in Bhimber district.
Danna Baroh village is situated in close proximity to the LoC in Samahni subdivision of Bhimber district.
It is pertinent to note here, on Tuesday, India requested Pakistan Army to stop artillery firing along the Line of Control after continuous warmongering following the Pulwama attack.
As per details, during the recent tensions, Pakistan Army inflicted heavy losses to India.
Sources said that 34 Indian armed forces personnel had been killed on February 28 in an exchange of artillery and India had to change their gun positions.
India has been continuously violating ceasefire along LoC and the working boundary time to time, as per the Foreign Office of Pakistan.
