Jammu: The Pakistani troops on Friday resorted to indiscriminate firing at Indian positions along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Akhnoor district., a day after India carried out "surgical strikes" on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control, inflicting massive casualties.
This is the fifth ceasefire violation in the month of September and the third in the past 36 hours.
"There was small arms firing (from Pakistan on forward posts) along the LoC in Pallanwala, Chapriyal and Samnam areas of Jammu district during the night," Deputy Commissioner, Jammu, Simrandeep Singh said.
He said the firing started at 0030 hours and ended at 0130 hours.
