RAWALPINDI - Three Pakistan Army soldiers were martyred on Monday as Indian forces opened fire along the Line of Control (LoC), said a statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

The incident occurred in the Rakhchikri sector of the LoC.

One other soldier was injured in the unprovoked incident of firing by Indian troops.

The development came hours after Pakistan allowed convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife to meet the spy in Islamabad, in what the Foreign Ministry said was a “humanitarian gesture”.

The shelling occurred at Rukh Chakri sector in Rawlakot and received a strong response from Pakistani forces.

India had initiated the "unprovoked ceasefire violation" that led to an exchange of fire between the two countries' border forces, the ISPR said.
