Pakistan violated the ceasefire agreement by opening fire at Indian posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district on Thursday night. No casualty was reported.

An army spokesperson said Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked firing in the Balnoi area at 10pm on Thursday. "Pakistani troops opened unprovoked firing with small arms and light and heavy automatic weapons. The firing lasted for more than one hour," he said.

The Indian troops exercised restraint and fired back in a controlled manner. A state of high alert is being maintained along the LoC.
