J&K: Infiltration bid foiled in Poonch sector; 6 terrorists killed

Indian fire across LoC kills school van driver in Azad Kashmir

A Pakistani national embraced martyrdom after Indian forces targeted a school children van in Battal Sector along the Line of Control, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Thursday.

Faisal urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement and investigate the repeated incidents of ceasefire violations, the statement said. "The troops fired and the intruding terrorists were forced to beat a hasty retreat into the Pakistani side", said sources adding that a search operation is on in the area. "A brief firing exchange took place between the troops and the terrorists".

He prayed for eternal peace to be granted to the departed soul and courage for the victim's bereaved family.

A student of a local degree college, who was present in the vehicle, narrated her ordeal: "There was firing while we were on the way and I thought the vehicle had been hit".

All this comes in the backdrop of the escalating rhetoric between India and Pakistan, with the two defence ministers warning each other's country of deadly retribution, as well as the scathing criticism against the Modi government by Congress and other political parties for failing to deliver on all its tough talk against Pakistan.

DG ISPR says Indian unethical and unprofessional approach across the LoC continues terrorising civilians.

In 2018, the Indian forces have carried out more than 335 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, resulting in the deaths of 14 civilians, he said. India has already lost 16 soldiers, apart from BSF personnel and civilians, in over 280 ceasefire-fire violations (CFVs) and terror incidents in J&K this year.
