Islamabad: In another unprovoked seized fire violation, the Pakistani troops shelled and fired on Indian posts in four sectors along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu, Rajouri and Poonch districts of Jammu and Kashmir, in which two persons including a jawan were injured.

According to a defence spokesman,"There have been unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistani Army in Sunderbani and Naushera sectors of Rajouri district and Pallanwala sector of Jammu district." He further stated, "Pakistani troops used 82mm mortar bombs and automatic weapons on Indian positions from 1440 hours on Monday in these sectors."

Jammu Deputy Commissioner, Simrandeep Singh, said, "Mangat Ram, a 67 year old resident, was injured in Pakistani shelling in Khour area in Pallanwala sector."

It may be mentioned that, Pakistani troops also resorted firing along LoC in Khadi area of Poonch district on the same day in which one jawan was injured. The defence spokesman said the Indian troops gave “befitting reply” to Pakistani firing.
