Pakistani troops violated ceasefire, firing from small arms and shelling mortar bombs on forward posts along the LoC in Rajouri district on Monday.

The firing was on after Indian troops retaliated to the ceasefire violation.

“There was ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Sunderbani sector of Rajouri district”, said defence spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta.

“Pakistan Army initiated indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars at 6pm on Indian Army posts along LoC in Sunderbani sector. The army posts are retaliating strongly and effectively. The firing is presently on”, he added.
