Indian military spokesman Col. Brijesh Pandey said Pakistani forces fired mortars into the Uri sector on the Indian side of Kashmir.

A shell hit a house close to the military line dividing Kashmir between the countries, killing a man and two teenagers, including a girl, Pandey said.

There was no independent confirmation of the incident.
