india Updated: Oct 30, 2013 23:13 IST

The Pakistani Army resorted to unprovoked firing on Indian Army positions in the Akhnoor sector of the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir ON Wednesday evening, a defence spokesman said.

"Pakistan troops fired at our posts in Gigreal and Hamirpur areas using small arms and automatics. Our troops responded with similar calibre weapons. The firing started at 8.30 p.m. and was continuing till last reports came in (at 9.30 p.m.). There has been no casualty or damage on our side so far," the spokesman said.

On Tuesday, officers of India's paramilitary Border Security Force the Pakistan Rangers held a detailed flag meeting at an octroi post in the Suchetgarh sector of RS Pura on the international border in Samba district.

The two sides agreed to respect the ceasefire on the international border and hold flag meetings to defuse tensions.
