Indian troops shot and killed one Pakistani soldier and injured another in an "unprovoked" attack across the countries' disputed border in Kashmir, Pakistan's army said Saturday.

"A soldier embraced martyrdom while another was seriously injured due to unprovoked firing by Indian troops in Rawala Kot area at the Line of Control (LoC) on Saturday," the army said in a statement.

A ceasefire has been in force along the Line of Control since 2003 despite sporadic violations on both sides.
