Meanwhile, the Pakistan Army resorted to heavy shelling and firing at Indian positions in Naushera sector of the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district on Tuesday.

An Indian soldier and a woman were on Monday killed in firing by the Pakistan Army across the de-facto border in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

Two more soldiers and another civilian were injured in the latest violation by the Pakistan Army of the 2003 ceasefire agreement to maintain peace at borders and along the Line of Control (LoC), a police spokesman said.

The spokesman said the fresh cross-border firing incidents occurred in Rajouri and Poonch districts on the LoC that divides Jammu and Kashmir between the two countries.

The spokesman said the Pakistan Army used 82 mm mortar shells and automatic weapons to target Indian positions on the LoC and the soldier and the woman were killed in the Tarkundi sector of Rajouri. The deceased woman was identfied as Rubina Kausar, 50. The identity of the slain soldier was not known immediately.

The Indian Army retaliated to the firing "effectively", said the spokesman. India and Pakistan have accused each other of regularly violating the ceasefire agreement between them to maintain peace at the border and the LoC.

Border skirmishes intensified after Pakistani militants attacked a military base in Jammu and Kashmir's Uri, killing 19 Indian soldiers on September 18.

The Uri attack prompted the Indian Army to carry out a surgical strike that destroyed seven terror launch pads and killed an unknown number of terrorists and their sympathisers in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, across the LoC.

Terrorists From Pakistan Trying To Cross The International Border

Amid report of killing of 7 civilians by Pakistani firings along the LoC, the Army has released CCTV visuals of terrorists infiltrating across the International Border in Kathua.


The thermal image in the video is showing how a group of terrorists is trying to cross the border. "Infiltration attempts which are being foiled are directly facilitated by Pakistan so that terrorists can be pulled back," Dharmendra Parikh, BSF DIG said.
