Indian troops fired across the disputed Kashmir border and killed a Pakistani soldier today in the third deadly incident in the disputed region in recent days.

A spokesman from Pakistan’s military said the shooting was unprovoked, while the Indian military said its troops responded to fire from soldiers across the frontier.

On Tuesday, India said Pakistani soldiers crossed the border and killed two Indian soldiers, decapitating one of them. Pakistan has denied the allegations.

The tit-for-tat fighting threatens to reverse progress Pakistan and India have made in improving their antagonistic relationship.
