MUZAFFARABAD, Pakistan: A Pakistani government official says Indian troops have fired across the Line of Control in the disputed Kashmir region, killing a woman and wounding six others.
Hameed Kiani, a deputy commissioner, said Saturday’s alleged cease-fire violation by India took place in the Kotli district in Pakistan’s part of Kashmir.
Pakistan’s foreign ministry said it has summoned an Indian diplomat and lodged a complaint against the latest Indian shelling.
In a statement, it said Indian forces since January have carried out over 900 cease-fire violations, killing 21 civilians.
There was no immediate comment from the Indian government.
Kashmir is split between the two nuclear-armed rivals. Both claim the region in its entirety and have fought two wars over it.
