Pakistan's army says Indian troops have fired across the frontier in the disputed region of Kashmir, killing a young man and wounding four people.
Indian Army successfully retaliated and fired at the intruders forcing them to retreat.
Earlier in the morning, security forces foiled an infiltration bid in the Zorawar sector of Uri district in Jammu and Kashmir and killed one terrorist during an encounter.More news: 1 in 2 Abortions Worldwide Are Unsafe

"Such irresponsible statements can cause uncomfortable environment, not only for Pakistan but also for the regional countries", Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said during his weekly press briefing.
Army sources suspect the attack was carried out by Pakistan's Border Action Team of BAT - a rogue unit comprising regular soldiers and militants which carries out attacks on Indian army across the LoC. Officials say that the cease fire violation took place from 0815 hours in Poonch and Bhimber Gali sectors along Line of Control.
Ever since the mutilation incidents, Indian forces have kept a close eye for BAT squads who attempt to cross the border to target Indian Army. Identifying the injured woman as Shamim Akhtar of Dharati village, sources said that mortar shells from across the LoC suddenly started falling in Balakote area of Mendhar around 8 am, according to The Indian Express.
