Punjab Rangers official killed by Indian troops near LoC

Islamabad, Oct. 18 (ANI): Indian Army firing has reportedly claimed the life of a Punjab Rangers official at the Line of Control (LoC).

The official has been identified as Asrar, the Express Tribune reports.

The firing took place in Sialkot's Chaprar Sector, but stopped after retaliatory firing by the Pakistan Army, the report added.

The incident comes few days after India had asked Pakistan to maintain the sanctity of the LoC for improvement in bilateral ties.
