Educational institutions closed in Poonch district

IANS  |  Jammu 

Authorities on Tuesday closed all educational institutions in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district where a child, a woman and a Border Security Force (BSF) officer were killed on Monday in Pakistan shelling.

All these institutions were within 5 km distance of the Line of Control (LoC).

Due to indiscriminate targeting of defence and civilian facilities by Pakistan along the LoC, a six-year-old girl, a woman and an inspector of the BSF were killed while 13 others were injured on Monday.

After heavy firing exchanges between the Indian and Pakistani armies the previous day, there was calm along the LoC on Tuesday.
