SRINAGAR : India said one of its soldiers was killed when Pakistan troops fired early on Monday across the border in Kashmir, the latest in a series of deadly flare-ups in the disputed Himalayan region.
The soldier was killed just after midnight at an army post along the northern part of the heavily militarised border that divides the two countries in Kashmir, an Indian army spokesman said.
India did not fire back and instead lodged a protest with the Pakistani army over a hotline, said the army’s spokesman in Srinagar Naresh Vig.
“It is a ceasefire violation. A junior commissioned officer was killed as Pakistani soldiers fired at an Indian army post in Uri sector at 12.15am,” Mr Vig told AFP.
