Srinagar: The Pakistan Army on Tuesday resorted to shelling and firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Bhimbher Gali sector and Poonch.

Giving a befitting reply the Indian Army retaliated with full vigour. The firing from across the border started at 6:45 am.

The exchange of fire is still going on.

An Army jawan and a minor girl were on Monday killed while four persons injured in heavy firing and mortar shelling by the Pakistan Army along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch, Rajouri and Baramulla districts.

The latest ceasefire violation incident came a day after an Army jawan and a minor girl were on Monday killed while four persons injured in heavy firing and mortar shelling by the Pakistan Army along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch, Rajouri and Baramulla districts.

As the border tension raged, the Directors General of Military Operation (DGMO) of India and Pakistan spoke over the hotline. The DGMOs usually speak on Tuesdays but Monday's was an unscheduled conversation on Pakistan's request.

The DGMO noted that firing by Indian troops was initiated against armed intruders trying to sneak into India "from close proximity of Pakistan posts".
