Pakistan army said Sunday that two girls and two women were injured by "Indian unprovoked firing on civilian house" along the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed Kashmir region.

An army statement said that Indian forces fired in Khui Ratta area along the LoC, the de facto border between the two countries.

"Two girls and two women got injured, evacuated by Army troops to nearby hospital," the statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations said, adding that Pakistani forces responded to the Indian firing.

Pakistan and India had declared ceasefire along the LoC and working boundary in 2003.

There has been an escalation along the LoC and the working boundary since suspected militants attacked an army base in the Indian-controlled Kashmir on Sept. 18 last year.

India blamed the Pakistan-based "Jaish-e-Mohammad" group. But Islamabad rejected the charges and suggested independent investigation into the attack. Endit
