Srinagar: In yet another incident of ceasefire violation, Pakistan Army on Monday fired at Indian troops along the international border at Abdullain in RS Pura sector, reports said on Tuesday.

The Border Security Force, which maintains security at the border, retaliated to the Pakistani firing, which started at 9: 30 PM and continued for over one hour.

A total of 136 ceasefire violations have been reported in 2013, the highest in the past 8 years.

The tension at the LoC was also discussed by the Prime Ministers of the two countries during their meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York last month.

Even though Prime Ministers Manmohan Singh and Nawaz Sharif had agreed to a meeting between the DGMOs of two countries, no dates have been fixed yet.

India has stated that normalcy at LoC is one of the main criteria for holding further talks between the two countries.
