Islamabad, Jan. 11 (ANI): Pakistan has summoned the Indian ambassador to Islamabad to protest against the killing of another Pakistani soldier in what it said was a second cross-border attack from Indian troops at the LoC (Line of Control), according to the Foreign Ministry.
Pakistan said the soldier was killed on Thursday. It was the third deadly incident and fourth death reported in five days in the disputed Kashmir region, which is claimed in full by both India and Pakistan but ruled in part by each, reports The Dawn.
Pakistan said the soldier died as a result of "unprovoked" fire from India.
An Indian army spokesman said Pakistan opened fire and Indian soldiers retaliated.
The US has urged the two rival countries to cool tensions along the heavily militarised LoC.
On Tuesday India said two of its soldiers were killed by Pakistani troops and one of them was beheaded. Pakistan denied any responsibility.
On Sunday the Pakistani army accused India of killing one of its soldiers and wounding another in a cross-border attack. India said its troops had opened fire following a Pakistani mortar attack, but denied they crossed the border.
Kashmir has been the cause of two of their three wars since independence from Britain in 1947.
A ceasefire has been in force along the LoC since 2003 despite sporadic violations on both sides. (ANI)
