SRINAGAR: A seven-year-old girl and a soldier were killed in firing this morning by Pakistani troops along the border at Jammu and Kashmir. India put out a strong warning to Pakistan, with its top military commander making it clear that the army "reserved the right to retaliate appropriately" to ceasefire violations.

This morning, a little girl was killed in firing at Poonch, where two more civilians were injured.

A jawan was killed in firing at Rajouri. The army said soldier Muddasar Ahmed was hit when mortar shells landed on his bunker at around 7.30 am. The 37-year-old father of two was a brave and sincere soldier and "loved his job to the core", the army said.

According to an official statement, India's Director General of Military Operations, in a conversation with his Pakistani counterpart, "Made it implicit that Indian Army reserved the right to retaliate appropriately to any incident of violation of ceasefire but is sincere in its effort of maintaining peace and tranquility along the Line of Control provided there was reciprocity."
