SRINAGAR: An Army porter was killed in cross-border shelling after Pakistan violated ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Wednesday.
In the afternoon, Pakistan initiated unprovoked firing and intense mortar shelling along the LoC in Uri’s Lachipora area, to which the Indian Army effectively retaliated, a police officer said. In the cross-border exchange of fire and shells, the porter — identified as Altaf Hussain (26) — was killed.
A resident of Uri’s Gohalan village, Hussain was working with Army’s 11 Mahar unit and was deputed with Lachipora’s Tika Rajput post along the LoC, said the officer.
