New Delhi: After repeated ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC), senior officials from Pakistan and India spoke on the phone over the issue on Tuesday.

Director Generals of Military Operations (DGMO) of India and Pakistan reportedly had a discussion over ceasefire violations going on from the past few months.

An Army official said that the DGMOs from both the sides reportedly talk every Tuesday over the phone and discuss the LoC and IB.
In a recent offensive, heavy firing by the Pakistani troops in the Bhimber Gali sector in Poonch took place today afternoon.

Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde today visited Jammu and Kashmir and reviewed the security situation in Samba sector.

There have been regular instances of ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB) by Pakistan in the recent months.

Intelligence reports have allegedly suggested the presence of Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed along the LoC. Shinde further said that Saeed has reportedly been facilitating the cross border infiltration.
