Jammu, Feb 24: Indian and Pakistani troops once again traded fire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district on Sunday, officials said.

“At about 1715 hours (5.15 pm), Pakistan initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by shelling with mortars and firing of small arms along the LoC in Nowshera sector,” a defence spokesperson said, adding Indian Army is retaliating “strongly and effectively”.

A police official said dozens of mortars were fired by Pakistan from across the LoC, hitting several villages, including Kalsia, Manpur and Ganiya.

No one was injured in the shelling that was still continuing when last reports were received, the official added.
