KASHMIR: LoC firing; Pak claims five Indian soldiers and three of its own killed; China moves UN-SC

NEW DELHI: India rejected as “fictitious” a claim by Pakistan that it killed five Indian soldier in a cross-border firing on LOC on Thursday. While making the claim, Pakistan military spokesman Asif Ghafoor said Pakistan also lost three soldiers in the firing. 

The claim came on a day when reports came that China approached the UN Security Council with a plea to take up the Kashmir issue in the context of India making changes in Jammu and Kashmir State’s status. The Indian government’s decision had been strongly opposed by Pakistan. China also has objection to the change of status of Ladakh in special. China wrote to Poland, which is currently heading the Security Council, to press the plea. –IHN-NN
