Pakistan violates ceasefire, shells forward areas along LoC in J&K’s Rajouri

JAMMU: Pakistani troops on Monday violated ceasefire by resorting to firing and shelling on forward areas along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, a defence spokesman said. The firing from small arms and shelling from mortars from across the border was “unprovoked”, he added.
The spokesman said the cross-border shelling started around 5 pm and was retaliated befittingly by the Indian Army. There was no report of any casualty on the Indian side, he said, adding the exchange of firing between the two sides was going on when last reports were received.
