A defence spokesperson said Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked firing at Indian positions in Digwar sector along the LoC in Poonch district late Monday night.

 

"The unprovoked firing at our positions started at 10 pm yesterday. We retaliated and the exchange continued till 2 am today (Tuesday) morning. No loss has been reported from our side," the spokesman said.

 

Intelligence agencies in J&K believe that Pakistani troops resort to firing at Indian positions to provide cover to infiltrating guerrillas from across the LoC.
