Srinagar: The Indian Army launched a strong retaliatory action after Pakistan again violated ceasefire in the Bhimber Gali sector in the Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday.
The Pakistan Army initiated indiscriminate firing of small arms and automatics from 9.45 am on Sunday along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Bhimber Gali sector.
Meanwhile, the Pakistan Rangers on Sunday violated unprovoked ceasefire on forward Border Security Force (BSF) troops in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ramgarh sector at 10: 45 a.m.
The Indian Army posts retaliated strongly and effectively. The firing continued for about 45 minutes.
No injuries or damages have been reported.
Earlier on Saturday night, Pakistan resorted to heavy shelling on India’s forward military posts and civilian areas in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Pakistani troops used mortar bombs and fired with automatic weapons from across the Line of Control (LoC) in Krishna Ghati sector, prompting Indian troops to retaliate, a senior army officer said.
“Pakistani Army initiated indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics, 82 mm and 120 mm mortars from 2030 hours along the Line of Control (LC) in Krishana Ghati sector,” a senior army officer said.
