SIALKOT: At least one person was killed and three others injured on Sunday during an exchange of fire across the working border between India and Pakistan border near Silakot's Charwah and Mirajkey sectors, DawnNews reported.

Pakistan Rangers claimed that Indian soldiers indiscriminately opened fire early Sunday morning in Sialkot's Mirajkey and Charwah sectors, killing one man and wounding two women and a child.

Rescue teams immediately reached the attack site and shifted the injured to a Combined Military Hospital Sialkot.

Locals also reported that the shelling and firing from across the border had also killed several livestock.
