India resort to heavy shelling across 'Line of Control', several Pakistanis including woman injured

ISLAMABAD - India resort to heavy shelling across 'Line of Control', several Pakistanis including woman injured.

Three civilians, including a woman and her teenage son, were injured in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) on Monday in heavy Indian shelling from across the restive Line of Control (LoC), officials said.

The casualties occurred in Gujjar Morr village of Samahni tehsil, in the southernmost Bhimber district, after Indian troops resorted to ceasefire violations at about 2:30am, using both small and big arms.

“The shelling lasted for one and a half hours without any pause and it was intense,” Bhimber SP Sultan Awan said, adding that Indian troops targeted the civilian population “intentionally”.
