Indian troops killed at least six civilians and injured another nine, including women and young girls, as they resorted to “indiscriminate and ruthless” shelling from across the Line of Control (LoC) in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), officials said on Sunday.

They said it was the highest death toll in 2019 in a single day of Indian shelling from across the dividing line.

Confirming the casualties, AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider said Indian forces in occupied Kashmir had “gone berserk”.
