Indian army troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation in the Tatta Pani and Rakhchakri sectors of Kashmir along the Line of Control (LoC) on Sunday, targeting the civilian population.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), an 11-year-old girl was martyred and four other civilians including two children got injured as a result of Indian firing.
