Pak shells kill five of family

Pakistan Army started unprovoked shelling at around 7:40 AM today, Defence spokesman Col. Hari said.

Mohd. Ramzan, his wife and their three sons were killed in the firing after a Pakistani shell fell on their house. Two daughters of Mohammad Ramzan, a resident of Devta Sargloon in Mendhar, Nasreen Kaunsar, 11 and Mehreen Kaunsar, 5, were injured in the shelling. Indian troops guarding the border retaliated strongly and effectively, he added.

At least five Indian soldiers were wounded in a separate episode in the same area, Indian officials said.

On the other side, the Foreign Office of Pakistan in a briefing on March 03, claimed that India carried out more than 415 ceasefire violations in 2018 resulting in killing of 20 civilians from their side.

Two sisters were critically injured in the shelling and were airlifted to Jammu for treatment. "My deepest condolences to their family", the chief minister said in a tweet. "The deliberate provocation has resulted in loss of five precious and innocent civilian lives", the Army PRO said.

SD Singh Jamwal, IGP Jammu, told ANI that helicopters have been sent to retrieve the injured for specialised treatment in Jammu.

The local villagers were also angry with the slow pace of work on the construction of bunkers in the forward areas.

In February, four Army personnel, including a 22-year-old Captain, were killed in Pakistani shelling along the LoC in Poonch and Rajouri districts.

According to Rashida Choudhary, sister-in-law of Ramzan, the family was getting ready to sip tea when they were hit by splinters of mortar shell.

The deceased include the house owner, a woman, a boy and a minor girl, a police officer said.
