LoC violation: Indian shelling leaves 2 students injured

AZAD KASHMIR: Two students were injured during “unprovoked” shelling by the Indian army near Batal sector, Line of Control (LoC) on Wednesday, Daily Telegram565312-borderlockashmirindiapakistanphotoafp-1371626823-386-640x480 reported.

The injured were taken to a local hospital for medical aid.

The number of injured is feared to increase.

Reportedly, the shelling began at 10:20am today.

The LoC that separates Kashmir has been subject to a ceasefire agreed by the nuclear-armed neighbours since 2003, offering a semblance of security to the hamlets that dot the snow-capped, mountainous terrain.

Periodic violations and cross-border shelling are a constant menace, with the most recent one occurring in early June allegedly from the Pakistani side. Islamabad has denied the charges.
