One girl was killed and two children injured Saturday following an incident of unprovoked firing by Indian army in the Nakyal Sector of the Line of Control (LOC), the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement late Saturday night.

However, the Pakistan Army immediately responded “befittingly” to the Indian firing.

The Indian army targeted a village with the use of “small arms and mortars” and, as a result, Tashiba was martyred, while two other persons, including the deceased’s sister, were left wounded.

22-year-old Tashiba — the daughter of Muhammad Iqbal — and her sister Aneeqa, 18, both hail from Balakot village.

On Thursday, six civilians, including four women, were martyred and 26, including 15 women and five children, were injured when Indian forces opened fire across the Working Boundary in Charwah and Harpal sectors of Sialkot.

On Friday, Pakistan summoned to the Foreign Office Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale to record a protest over the incident.
