Pakistan violates ceasefire along LoC in Poonch

JAMMU: The Pakistan Army Sunday violated ceasefire by resorting to unprovoked firing and intense mortar shelling along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district, a defence spokesman said.

The firing and shelling from across the border in Mendhar sector started at 4.15 pm, prompting a befitting retaliation by the Indian army, the spokesman said.

He said the exchange of fire was on when the last reports came in.

There was no report of any damage on the Indian side, the spokesman said. (AGENCIES)
