Jammu: One army jawan killed in shelling by Pakistan along LoC in Naushera sector of Rajouri district.

The shelling by Pakistani troops at Indian posts and civilian areas in Rajouri and Poonch districts of Jammu and Kashmir forced Indian troops to retaliate.

The Indian Army hit back and caused heavy damage to Pakistan posts.

There was unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district from 1345 hours today, a defence spokesman said.

They used 120mm mortar bombs and automatic weapons during the ceasefire violation, he said, adding befitting reply has been given to them without any casualty on our side.

It may be recalled that Pakistani troops had violated ceasefire and resorted to firing in Mankote and Balakote areas of Mendhar sector in Poonch district yesterday.

On November 6, two army jawans were killed and five others - two soldiers, a BSF officer and two women - were injured as Pakistani army opened fire in an attempt to facilitate two infiltration bids along the LoC in Krishna Ghati and Poonch sectors of Poonch district.

There had been over 100 ceasefire violations on Indian posts and civilian areas along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir after the surgical strike.

The worst-ever Pakistani shelling, targeting civil population, took place on November 1 when eight persons, including two children and four women, were killed and 22 injured along the IB and the LoC in five sectors of J&K, forcing Indian troops to give befitting reply by destroying 14 Pakistani posts and killing two of their troopers.

The state government had closed over 400 schools along the International Border (IB) and the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu region in wake of the ongoing heavy cross-border firing.
