Youth killed in cross-border firing by Indian forces: ISPR


RAWALPINDI: A 19-year-old boy embraced martyrdom in cross-border firing by Indian forces along the Line of Control (LoC), the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Friday.

The military’s media wing said Indian army continues to terrorize civilian population along the LoC.

“An innocent young boy Inzamam s/o M Amin aged 19 embraced shahadat due to Indian unprovoked and targeted firing ,” it said.

“Shaheed Inzamam, resident of village Tetrinote, was carrying out routine work at a crush plant at Poonch river bank. Pakistan Army troops target Indian army post which initiated fire on civil population.”

An eight-year-old boy was killed by cross-border firing by Indian troops in Khuiratta Sector along the restive LoC earlier this week.

The Foreign Office summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh to lodge protest over unprovoked ceasefire violations by Indian forces along the LoC.

The Foreign Office told the Indian diplomat that despite calls for restraint, his country continued to indulge in ceasefire violations.

Indian forces had carried out more than 335 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary this year, which resulted in the death of 15 innocent civilians and injuries to 65 others, it said.
