Pakistan rejected on Friday India’s claims of killing one militant and seven Pakistani Rangers along the Jammu border. Terming India’s version of casualties along the Line of Control (LoC) false, the military’s media wing said no loss was reported from the Pakistani side of the border.

ISPR chief General Asim Bajwa tweeted that the Indian side resorted to unprovoked fire/shelling on working boundary in Shakargarh sector. He said the Rangers befittingly responded, adding no loss was reported on the Pakistan side.

ISPR, in a statement, said the BSF resorted to unprovoked firing and shelling on the working boundary in Shakargarh sector north of Chak Amoo village. “Exchange of firing continued from 9 to 9.30am.”

The ISPR later added that Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing at Karela sector in the LOC at 2055 hours as well. “Firing continued till late at night.”
