New Delhi: In yet another ceasefire violation across the LoC, Pakistan on Thursday fired at Indian posts in the Poonch sector in Jammu and Kashmir, the scene of Tuesday`s brutal killing of two Indian soldiers by Pakistani Army troops.

Pakistan said it lost one soldier in the exchange of fire, while claiming that the provocation took place from Indian side which was rejected by Army Headquarters here.

The Army here rejected the allegation of starting the firing.

India also dismissed Pakistan`s allegations that its Army transgressed the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector on Sunday.

In fact, Pakistan had carried out a ceasefire violation on the night of January 5-6 and "controlled retaliation" was carried out by the Indian Army on January 6, an Army press release said today.

"No LoC transgression has been resorted to by the Indian army in Uri Sector on January 6 as alleged," it said.
