KARACHI, (AA): Pakistan on Monday accused longtime rival India of killing four civilians and injuring six others in a firing and shelling incident in the disputed Kashmir Valley.
The latest casualties have raised the number of recent deaths to 20 as ongoing border clashes continue, triggered by a brazen attack on an army base in Indian-held Kashmir late last month which killed 18 Indian soldiers.
New Delhi, which accuses Islamabad of having had a hand in the attack, has since been boasting about “surgical strikes” on alleged militant camps inside Pakistan in retaliation.
However, Pakistan denies involvement.
One person was killed and at least three people were injured on Tuesday as Pakistani forces targeted Indian posts and forward villages along the International Border and Line of Control in Jammu, Samba and Rajouri districts, reported Indian army.
An 18 year old girl was killed in her house in Ramgarh sub sector of Samba district.
Locked in a string of land and sea disputes, the two neighbors have fought three full-scale wars — two of them on Kashmir — since the creation of Pakistan in 1947 following the end of British colonial rule in India.
