Soldier injured in Pakistani firing dies

A soldier injured in Pakistani firing died on Wednesday at a hospital in Rajouri, even as both the Line of Control (LoC) and the International Border remained calm for the second consecutive day.

With the death of the soldier, the death toll in ceasefire violations by Pakistan in Jammu region has gone up to 13.

Earlier, seven civilians and five security personnel had been killed in recent Pakistani shelling and firing on the LoC and the International Border.

After unabated clashes between Indian and Pakistani troops on the LoC and IB, calm has now returned to the border in Jammu region since the past two days.
