Ahead of the Republic Day, three mortar shells were fired from the Pakistani side targeting an Indian post in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday, but there were no casualties.

Three mortal shells, fired from across the border, exploded some 200-mt away from the Cobra Forward Defence Location along the Line of Control in Poonch sector this evening, official sources said.

A senior army officer told PTI three power explosions were heard several metres away from the post.

"We cannot say whether it is a ceasefire violation or militant-triggered blasts," the officer of the 16 Corps said.

The Army was investigating, he said adding there were no casualties or damage on the Indian side.
