The Pakistani troops on Tuesday violated ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir’s Nowgam sector of Handwara area. The Indian Army has also retaliated strongly. 

On Monday, intermittent exchange of fire had taken place between Indian army personnel and Pakistani troops in the Uri sector along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, forcing the authorities to shutdown schools in the affected areas. An army official had informed there were no fresh casualties on the Indian side in the exchange of fire.

Pakistani troops had violated ceasefire by resorting to unprovoked firing on Indian posts and villages near the LoC in the Kamalkote area on Saturday, resulting in the death of an Army porter and injuries to two women.
