Pak Resorts To Unprovoked Shelling In Poonch Sector, 2 Soldiers Martyred


Update: Another army soldier killed in cross-border firing along LoC in Poonch sector taking the toll to 2; two soldiers injured, reports news agency PTI.

Jammu: One soldier was killed on Sunday after Pakistani troops again resorted to unprovoked shelling at Indian positions along the Line of Control in Krishna Ghati (KG) sector of Poonch district, PTI reported.

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.
