A senior military official, who did not want to be named, said the latest death occurred in Khairni Rakkar village of Rawalakot district in Battal sector of the Line of Control (LoC).

"Sakhi Muhammad, 60, was killed and his daughter Nabeela was seriously injured due to unprovoked shelling last night," the official said.

Relations between India and Pakistan soured last week after the killing of five Indian soldiers in an attack on the LoC. The Indian government said that "specialist troops" of the Pakistan Army were involved in the attack.
