Pakistan on Wednesday violated ceasefire in Digwar sector’s Nakarkote in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch.

Indian Army retaliated strongly to the ceasefire violation.

Pakistan violated ceasefire from 0845 hours in Jammu & Kashmir's Poonch sector along the Line of Control.

Earlier on October 2, the Pakistani troops violated ceasefire along Line of Control near Keri and Digwar areas of Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

A nine-year-old boy was killed and five other civilians were injured as Pakistani troops targeted border villages and forward posts along the Line of Control in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir by firing and shelling, a police official said.

Indian troops fired in retaliation to silence the Pakistani guns and the exchange of fire between the two sides was continuing when last reports came in.
