Violating the ceasefire again, Pakistani troops tonight targeted forward Indians posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Poonch sector in which light arms to meduium guns were used in the heavy firing.

The firing at the two posts at Kranti and Kripan in Jhalas area occurred around 8 pm, according to Poonch SSP
Manmohan Singh.

Intermittent firing from the Pakistani side was still on nearly four hours after the launch of the strike, Singh added.

Indian troops guarding the LoC took positions and fired back in heavy exchanges for over two hours, Singh said.

No Defence spokesman was immediately available for comment.

Singh said the firing could be an attempt to aid an an inflitration bid by providing cover to militants waiting to
sneak into India.

There have been several instances of ceasefire violation this year.
