Jammu: The Pakistani Army on Monday resorted to unprovoked shelling and firing on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir`s Poonch district.
The shelling and firing were going on in Shahpur and Kerni areas, Defence Ministry sources said.
"The Pakistani Army is using mortars, automatics and small arms. The Indian Army is retaliating strongly and effectively," the sources said.
Reports of ceasefire violation by Pakistan have also come in from Nowshera sector of Rajouri district.
The ceasefire violations have come on a day when Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh begins his two-day visit to the Jammu region.
Singh, who is on a four-day visit to the state starting Saturday, was also scheduled to visit the international border in Jammu.
