Sialkot: COAS visits injured civilians by unprovoked Indian firing


SIALKOT: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif arrived in Sialkot on Friday and paid a visit to the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) Sialkot.


A spokesman for the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the military’s public relations wing, confirmed the death toll, adding that the 46 injured include 22 women and a minor girl.

The latest episode of cross-border firing comes days after high-level talks between the two country’s National Security Advisers were cancelled.

The chiefs of the Pakistan Rangers and the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) are still scheduled to meet on Sept 9 in New Delhi, where the two sides are expected to discuss the situation on the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary.
