Pak claims girl killed in LoC firingSeptember 23rd, 2008 - 1:12 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, Sept 23 (ANI): The Pakistan Army has alleged that a girl was killed on its side of the border after Indian troops fired at its troops at the Line of Control (LoC).
However, terming the charge as ”baseless”, Indian Brigadier Gopala Krishnan Mural said that militants from Pakistan infiltrated into India and triggered a gun-battle that left several of the insurgents dead.
Pakistan Army spokesman Major Murad Khan said the girl has been identified as Rania.
“Indian troops fired across the LoC and Pakistani troops returned the fire,” The Daily Times quoted Khan as saying.
While strongly protesting the Indian firing at the LoC, Pakistan has demanded a flag meeting. (ANI)
