Earlier, on Sept 29, Indian forces had resorted to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Nakyal and Rakh Chakri sectors.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), three civilians were injured as a result of the callous act of aggression whereas 13-year-old boy, Zeeshan Ayub and 60-year-old Salamat Bibi were martyred. The Indian forces had targeted a populous area alongside the border.
The Pakistani forces retaliated with full force to the Indian aggression, putting an end to the cross border firing for the time being.
