ISLAMABAD — The Pakistani military is accusing forces from neighboring India of crossing the boundary between the two sides’ forces in Kashmir and attacking a Pakistani border post, killing a soldier.

The military’s public relations office said in a statement Sunday that another Pakistani soldier was critically wounded in the incident early Sunday.

They said troops are still exchanging gunfire in the area.

They said the raid crossed the “line of control” dividing the Indian and Pakistani sides of Kashmir, a flashpoint of violence between these two neighbors for decades.

Both claim the region as their own.

A 2003 cease-fire ended the most recent round of fighting.

Each side occasionally accuses the other of violating it by lobbing mortars or shooting across the LOC, but accusations of cross-border raids are rare.
