ISLAMABAD: Indian troops opened unprovoked firing from across the Line of Control near Rawalakot in the Keller sector on Tuesday, killing two soldiers.
A spokesman for the Inter-Services Public Relations said that one of the soldiers died on the spot and the other during evacuation. He said the firing which started at 1:30pm continued for more than two hours.
It was the second incident of unprovoked firing by India in two days, the first across the Pakistan-India border in Sialkot on Monday.
The last incident of firing from the LoC had taken place in June 2008 in which four Pakistani soldiers lost their lives and another three were injured.
