ISLAMABAD: A 60-year-old man was martyred and three women were injured on Monday as Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing along the line of control in Nikial sector.
“On 21 August 2023, the Indian army resorted to unprovoked firing in Nikial Sector, targeting innocent civilians resulting in the Shahadat of an old aged (60 years) individual named Ghias, a resident of village Oli, district Kotli and traumatized three women who were cutting grass in the fields,” a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) read.
“This blatant Indian aggression is a clear violation of existing ceasefire understandings. Pakistan desires peace and tranquillity at its borders, however, all necessary measures will be taken to protect the life and property of our citizens,” it added.
The statement further read, “Any misadventure against the people of Pakistan will be befittingly responded at the time and place of our choosing.”
