The Pakistan Army on Sunday violated the ceasefire by opening fire in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir, drawing retaliation from Indian troops.
“The Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation in Poonch sector,” Defence spokesman Lt Col Manish Mehta said.
He said the Pakistan Army violated the ceasefire in Shahpur area of Poonch sector by firing with automatic weapons at 0430 hours.
“Our troops have responded appropriately, no casualty or damage to our troops was reported”, he said.
