The news comes after New Delhi reported an exchange of fire on the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed Jammu and Kashmir region several days earlier. Islamabad has also accused the Indian Army of breaking the ceasefire in the region.
According to Indian officials, Pakistani forces attacked an Indian Army post in the Machil sector on Saturday. As a result, a soldier named Rajinder Singh was injured and later died in a nearby hospital.
The tensions in the disputed region escalated earlier this month, despite an offer by US President Donald Trump to mediate the issue between the two countries, claiming that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked him about that during a meeting on the sidelines of the G20.
