Pakistan Foreign Office last week said that the civilian death toll from alleged Indian shelling has risen to at least 25 in the past few weeks.
Also there were reports of unprovoked firing at forward posts of BSF in Kashmir. Over 10 Indian soldiers were martyred during the Pakistani aggression. Civilians casualties in India were comparatively high in villages bordering the LoC.
