New Delhi :  

Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control in Shahpur Kerni sector of Poonch, Jammu and Kashmir on Monday. 

The firing started 1.40 PM and still on, however, no damage has been reported so far, the sources said. 

Indian Army is giving a befitting reply. 


“Pakistan violated ceasefire by resorting to firing at P-1and P-2 posts in Shahpur Sector of district Poonch,” said a police official.

The violation comes only two days a 22-year-old civilian was injured in another ceasefire violation by the Pakistani Army in Poonch.

On Saturday the Pakistani troops opened fire from heavy weapons and mortars from across the border in Debraj, Krishna Ghati and Ishapur in Mendhar sector starting at around 10.30 am, prompting retaliation by Indian troops guarding the border, a police official said.

Last week's ceasefire violation coincided with Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s four-day visit to the state.

The civilian, Mohammad Younis, was injured when a shell exploded in his village in Balnoi sector. A buffalo was also killed and a house damaged in the shelling, the official said.
