Pakistan Army claims of killing five Indian soldiers, injuring 'many' in Tatta Pani sector near LoC

Islamabad: Pakistan has claimed that its troops destroyed an Indian Army post in Tatta Pani sector across the Line of Control (LoC) and killed five soldiers.

Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Asif Ghaffor in a tweet late Thursday night also shared a video clip purportedly showing bombing of the Indian Army post and smoke billowing from the site after it was hit by fire.

Ghaffor tweeted:

However, an Indian Army official in New Delhi said the Pakistan Army's claim is "baseless".

Earlier, in a statement the Pakistan Army spokesman said that India's "unethical and unprofessional" approach across the LoC is terrorising civilians.

Pakistan on Thursday summoned India's deputy high commissioner JP Singh to condemn the "unprovoked firing" by Indian troops across the LoC which allegedly resulted in the death of a driver of a van carrying school children.

It alleged that the Indian forces "deliberately targeted a school van carrying school children on Battal-Madharpur road, resulting in the death of the driver of the van, leaving the school children severely traumatised."
