Jammu: India has retaliated against Pakistan’s unprovoked shelling on Sunday in J&K’s Poonch district by inflicting heavy damage on its posts across the Line of Control, as news agency PTI reported.
Earlier today, two soldiers were killed and two were wounded after Pakistani troops re- violated the ceasefire by shelling Indian positions along the Line of Control in the Krishna Ghati (KG) sector of Poonch district.
At least four places came under indiscriminate shelling and firing which has been started by Pakistan army to target civil and defence facilities in the area, a police official said here.
“Indian army has effectively retaliated using same calibre weapons, shelling and firing exchanges is still on,” he said.
Sunday’s unprovoked ceasefire violation on the border came after a lull of two days when an uneasy calm prevailed on the LoC and the International Border.
The violation of the ceasefire agreement by Pakistani side has become a rule rather than an exception after the Indian Army on September 28 night carried out surgical strikes against terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control in Pakistani side of Kashmir.
