Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire on Monday for the second time in four days on Indian posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district, an army spokesperson said.

Indian Army troops guarding the borderline retaliated and exchanges between the two sides were going till last reports came in.

"Pakistani troops resorted to small arms and automatic weapons firing on Indian posts along the LoC in Bhimber Gali in Rajouri district from 0515 hours," a defence spokesperson said.

Troops guarding the borderline fired back resulting in intermittent exchanges of fire, he said, adding, "firing exchanges are still going on".

There was no loss of life or injury to anyone on this side of the LoC, the spokesperson said, adding that no damage was caused in the firing.

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".

This is the second ceasefire violation in the past four days along the LoC.

On April 25, Pakistani troops had violated the ceasefire by firing with small arms and mortars on Indian posts in Doda battalion areas along the LoC in Poonch district.
