Indian troops were fired upon across the heavily fortified frontier in the Himalayan region of Kashmir, injuring a soldier, army officials said Saturday, even as Pakistan blamed Indian army soldiers for the shooting. Brig. Gopala Krishnan Murali, a senior Indian army officer in India's Jammu-Kashmir state, would not say whether suspected Islamic rebels or Pakistani soldiers initiated Friday's firing, but said that a formal complaint had been lodged with Pakistan. Pakistan's army, meanwhile, said it was Indian troops who "resorted to unprovoked firing." An army statement said that a protest had been filed "for cease-fire violation." India has blamed the attack on Lashkar-e-Taiba, an Islamist militant group widely believed to be created by Pakistani intelligence agencies in the 1980s to fight Indian rule in the divided Kashmir region.
