Srinagar : A woman was killed and nine other people, including two police constables, were injured in Pakistan administered Kashmir on Monday as Indian troops resorted to “ruthless” mortar shelling from across the restive Line of Control (LoC), Pakistan media reported.

“First they [Indians] fired some shells on Pakistan Army posts, but suddenly they started pounding civilian installations with mortar shells,” Akhtar Ayub, an Athmuqam based disaster risk management officer told Dawn.

Video footages shared by some Athmuqam residents in WhatsApp groups showed people running to safety amid the thunder of shelling and clouds of smoke, the report mentioned.

The shelling stopped after an hour but left a 27-year-old woman dead and nine others wounded, Ayub said.

He identified the deceased as Asiya Bibi.
