Pakistani troops again resorted to unprovoked and indiscriminate firing on Indian forward posts and civilian areas in the border district of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir today. 

Defence  Spokesperson told AIR News that at about 1245 hours today, Pakistan troops targeted Shahpur Sector along the Line of Control in Poonch district by firing small arms and shelling with Mortars.  

However, Indian troops returned the fire effectively. Last evening due to unprovoked firing by Pak troops, a 10-day-old baby,  who had got injured died at a hospital today. 

The infant, his mother Fatima Jan and another civilian Mohammad Arif were injured when mortar shells fired by Pakistan hit their village in Shahpur sector late Sunday. They were rushed to district hospital Poonch, where the minor succumbed to injuries.
