Ceasefire violation in Naushera : Pakistani troops resort to shelling, gunfire along LoC

News Agencies | Updated on: 11 February 2017, 5:45 IST

With ceasefire violations becoming a regular affair in the wake of the surgical strike unleashed by India along the LoC, Pakistani troops took to heavy shelling and firing in the Naushera sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district early on 4 October.

Pakistani forces started unprovoked firing and shelling in civilian areas and on forward Indian posts around 5 a.m. Troops guarding the border line retaliated effectively. The heavy exchange of fire is still going on. There is no report of any casualty or injury to the Indian side.

Indian Army has given befitting reply to the unprovoked shelling by Pakistan in civilian areas of Poonch district along the LoC yesterday in which five civilians including three women were injured and some shops were gutted in fire.

Indian troops targeted Pakistani posts, from where the shelling was initiating, effectively to silent the guns. Intermittent heavy exchanges were heard throughout the night. The escalated tension along the LoC and International Border has been forcing the border people to shift to safer places.
