An Afghan sentry employed at Friend Ship Gate of Chaman Border Crossing along Pakistan-Afghanistan Border in Balochistan Province opened unprovoked and indiscriminate firing at pedestrians moving from Pakistan to Afghanistan on Wednesday.
According to the Pak army's media wing, the ISPR, the incident occurred at the outbound gate located on the zero line. As a result, two innocent Pakistani citizens including a 12-year-old child martyred while another child was injured.
The ISPR statement said Pakistani troops exercised extreme restraint and avoided any exchange of fire in the presence of innocent passengers to avoid collateral damage.
Dead bodies of the deceased have been shifted to DHQ Hospital Chaman and the injured child, who was immediately evacuated by security forces, is under treatment.
Afghan authorities have been approached to inquire about the reason for such an irresponsible and reckless act of the culprit sentry and hand over him to Pakistani authorities.
The ISPR statement further said that IAG is also expected to exercise control over its troops and impart discipline to act responsibly in order to avoid the recurrence of such incidents in future.
Pakistan remains committed to contributing towards peace, prosperity and development through positive and constructive bilateral relations, however, such unpleasant occurrences have the potential to harm the sincere intent and purpose, the ISPR statement concluded.
