RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Chirikot along with Shakargarh sectors witnessed heavy firing and shelling by India along Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary (WB) on late Saturday night. According to the tweet of Director-General (DG) Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major-General Babar Iftikhar, Indian Army troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation late last night along LoC and Working Boundary. The DG ISPR said that the incident took place in Chirikot and Shakargarh sectors where the Indian troops deliberately targeted the civilian population in the area, the DG ISPR said. “Due to indiscriminate fire of mortars in Chirikot Sector along the LoC, 35-year-old innocent civilian, resident of Serian village got injured, while in Shakargarh Sector along the WB, 57-year-old citizen of Nangal village sustained serious injuries," he said. “Both injured have been evacuated and being provided with medical care,” the ISPR added. Earlier, responding to Indian airspace violation, Pakistan Army on Thursday shot down an Indian quadcopter along the Line of Control (LoC). According to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), An Indian quadcopter violated the Pakistani airspace in Sankh sector along the LoC. “In this provocative act, Indian quadcopter intruded 600 meters inside Pakistan’s territory for conducting surveillance,” the ISPR said. “This blatant act was aggressively responded to by Pakistan Army troops shooting down Indian quadcopter. Such unwarranted acts by Indian Army are clear violation of established norms, existing Air Agreement between two countries and reflect Indian Army’s consistent disregard to Ceasefire Understanding of 2003,” it added.
