At least five civilians, including three women, were injured in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) in "unprovoked" shelling by Indian troops from across the Line of Control (LoC) on Monday, officials said.

The shelling, which began at about 7am in the Nakyal sector of southern Kotli district, coincided with a weekly hotline contact between the Directors General of Military Operations (DGMOs) of Pakistan and India in the wake of Sunday’s mortar attack on an army vehicle in Neelum valley.

Officials said there was no let up in Indian aggression along the LoC in Nakyal sector after yesterday's attack.
