Afghan security forces resorted to unprovoked firing on Torkham border, injuring a Pakistani soldier, Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Sunday night.
“At about 2120 hrs tonight Afghan Security forces resorted to unprovoked firing on Pakistani side at Torkham Gate,” ISPR news release said, adding that a Pakistani soldier was injured in the incident.
Pakistani security forces responded to Afghan firing effectively, it said. It may be mentioned that Torkham is the most frequented crossing point at Pak-Afgn Border and recently even most of the terrorists have been found using this gate for entry.
In order to check movement of terrorists through Torkham, Pakistan is constructing a gate on own side of the border as a necessity to check unwanted and illegal movement, the ISPR said.
