"Pak troops resorted to small arms firing and mortars firing on Indian posts along LoC in Doda battalion area in Poonch district from 0935 hours", a senior Army officer told PTI.

Army troops guarding the borderline fired back resulting in intermittent exchanges of fire, which were still going on, he said.

The officer said there were inputs that militants were trying to infiltrate to this side and the firing was "probably a ploy to ensure infiltration of terrorist under the cover of firing".
