The Pakistan military’s media wing, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), has alleged Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing on Sunday and targetted a Pakistan Army vehicle across the Line of Control (LoC). As a consequence, four soldiers lost their lives after the vehicle plunged into Neelum River.
