A 10-day-old baby injured in ceasefire violation by Pakistan on Sunday has succumbed to his injuries. He was injured on Sunday and died Monday morning.
Two other civilians also got wounded in the latest case of ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday.
The baby was kept under observation in Poonch district hospital on Sunday. Two other civilians were shifted to a hospital in Jammu. They are still undergoing treatment.
This comes even as heavy shelling by Pakistan was reported on Monday morning in Mankot Krishna Ghati and Mendhar.
At around 5 pm on Sunday, Pakistan Army had resorted to unprovoked firing along the Line of Control in Poonch district.
The violation, carried out by firing of small arms and intense shelling with mortars, took place in Shahpur and Saujiyan sectors of the district.
The Indian Army gave a befitting reply to the Pakistani Army by firing heavily back on them.
On July 22, an Indian soldier was killed in Pakistani firing in Sunderbani sector of Rajouri district, while a civilian was also injured in another incident of ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Poonch sector on July 20.
This comes close on the heels of India moving 100 companies of paramilitary groups to the Kashmir valley to enhance security in the region.
ANI quoted government sources as per which the decision was taken after National Security Advisor Ajit Doval held a meeting on the security situation in Kashmir.
There were inputs that Pakistan army-backed terrorists were planning to carry out a major attack on Indian soil.
