Cross-border shelling rages in Tangdhar sector
Armies of India and Pakistan on Wednesday late evening exchanged cross-border shelling in Tanghdar sector of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
An official told GNS that Pakistani troops at around 9:00 pm attacked Indian army’s Black Rock Post, Sharart Post and Anil Post of 20 JAT Regiment with mortar shells.
“Some mortar shells also landed inside Hajitari and Dani villages of the area. However, there was no immediate report about any causality,” the official said.
He said that the army soldiers manning the fence also responded effectively.
When reports last came in, the intermittent cross-border shelling was going on.
On August 13, an army soldier was killed in a ‘sniper fire’ by Pakistan Rangers at Tanghdar sector along the Line of Control. (GNS)
