An eight-year-old boy was killed in Indian firing along the Line of Control, the Pakistan Army’s media wing Inter-Services Public Relations said on Monday.
The eight-year-old boy Ayan belonged to Jajot village, the ISPR said in a statement, denouncing “Indian brutality and the use of pellet guns in Indian-occupied Kashmir.”
DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor said that the blatant targeting of innocent unarmed civilians across the LoC ‘exposes the true Indian face’.
Last week, the Pakistani Army had accused Indian forces of killing the driver of a school van in Pakistan-administered Kashmir in firing across the LoC.
Meanwhile, reports quoting Indian Army sources said an intruder was shot dead and an attack by Pakistan Army’s BAT unit foiled in Poonch on Monday. The Army also alleged ceasefire violation by Pakistani forces in Uri sector.
