ISLAMABAD, Aug. 8 (UPI) -- A Pakistani civilian was seriously wounded by Indian troops Thursday, a Pakistani security official said.

Indian soldiers allegedly shot the civilian, identified as Kaka Sana, in Tatta Pani, on the Pakistani side of the India-Pakistan border, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Indian has not commented on the alleged shooting, but has blamed Pakistan for an ambush earlier this week that left five Indian soldiers dead and one injured.

"It is now clear that specialist troops of the Pakistan army were involved in this attack," A.K. Antony, India's defense minister, said in parliament. "We all know that nothing happens from Pakistan's side of the border without the support, assistance, facilitation and often direct involvement of the Pakistan Army."
