This comes a day after A BSF inspector and a five-year-old girl were killed and 20 persons were injured Monday as Pakistani troops persisted with heavy shelling
This comes a day after A BSF inspector and a five-year-old girl were killed and 20 persons were injured Monday as Pakistani troops persisted with heavy shelling of forward areas along the Line of Control in Poonch district, prompting Indian Army to give them a "befitting reply", said officials.
Six village houses too bore the brunt of shelling and suffered severe damages, they added.
"The Indian Army is retaliating," a Defence spokesperson said.
Five personnel of BSF's 168 battalion, including Inspector T Alex Lalminlun, were injured as shells landed at a forward post in Poonch sector Monday as Pakistan continued to violate cease fire for the fourth consecutive day in the Poonch and Rajouri districts.
The BSF inspector later succumbed to his injuries while the other injured BSF personnel were hospitalised, the officials said.
The injured soldiers are out of danger, they added.
Sobia, 5, was killed and two persons were injured when a shell exploded near their house in a village in Shahpur sub-sector along the LoC late Monday afternoon, they said.
Pakistan has violated ceasefire over 50 times since January 2019.
Heavy firing has been taking place from both sides.
