Indian forces across the disputed Himalayan border in Kashmir killed a Pakistani soldier, the Pakistan army said on Thursday.
"There was an unprovoked firing by Indian soldiers in the Keil sector of Neelam valley (in Kashmir) on Tuesday night," a Pakistani military spokesman said. One Pakistani soldier died, he said.
Three Pakistani soldiers were killed in a cross-border shooting in the same region of disputed Kashmir last week.
Despite the tension, a ceasefire agreed between India and Pakistan in 2003 along the Line of Control, the defacto border in Kashmir, has largely held.
