The Indian Army today rejected as "false and fabricated" a video circulated by Pakistan purportedly showing attacks by its military on a few Indian posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.

A spokesperson of the Pakistani military had tweeted the video clip titled "Pak Army strikes Indian Posts on LoC".

"It is false and fabricated," a top Indian Army official said in New Delhi.


The Indian Army had also rejected the Pakistan military's claim that five Indian soldiers were killed in Tatta Pani sector along the LoC yesterday when Pakistani troops had retaliated to Indian fire. The LoC is the de facto border that divides India and Pakistan in Kashmir.

A senior army official said there was no casualty and only a woman sustained injuries in the Pakistani firing.

On May 23, the Indian Army had released a video of "punitive fire assaults" on Pakistani positions across the Line of Control, inflicting "some damage".

Pakistan, however, had dismissed the Indian Army's assertion of destroying its posts in the Naushera sector.

Incidents of cross-border firing along the LoC have seen a significant rise in the last few weeks.
