Ceasefire violation: Heavy firing along LoC after Abdul Basit's 'peace talks suspension' statement

Srinagar: Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch Sector in Jammu and Kashmir around early Sunday morning.

They fired mortar fire and automatics from around 4.30 p.m., which was responded "appropriately" by the India troops, said a statement issued by Defence PRO here. Indian troops retaliated in equal measure.

However, no casualty or damage was reported, added the PRO.

The firing resumed after Pakistan high commissioner Abdul Basit on April 7 sparked controversy by announcing that comprehensive bilateral dialogue process between India and Pakistan has been 'suspended'.

There have been no instances of firing in the Rajouri-Poonch areas after brigadier level talks between the two armies held last October.
