"They used automatics and mortars. Our troops responded effectively using same caliber weapons," a source said.
There was no casualty or damage on the Indian side.
After the surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army on 29 September against terrorist launch-pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Pakistan stepped up cross-border firing and violated the Line of Control ceasefire several times.
In the wake of increased ceasefire violation from Pakistan side, the BSF has increased deployment of its troops along the International Border. Locals living in the area near the Line of Control (LoC) have been evacuated and moved to a safer place.
Further details awaited.
