Nowshera: Mortar Shell hits house
Nowshera: In Upper Dir, a minor was killed and three persons including a woman were injured when a mortar shell hit a house in Sro Kallay village, police and locals said on Tuesday.
However, it could not be ascertained as to who fired the mortar shell. Barawal police confirmed the killing of the minor. The injured were rushed to a local hospital.
The village located on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border has been targeted a couple of times before this month. Security forces were deployed in the area after Afghan Taliban allegedly launched a cross-border attack in Shaltalo and Sro Kallay that killed 27 police and levies personnel.
