The spokesperson said the Indian Army is retaliating strongly and effectively.

There was no report of any casualty on the Indian side, he said.

A special police officer escaped with splinter injuries when a mortar shell exploded at Gondria village in Shahpur sector which, along with nearby Kerni sector in Poonch district, witnessed heavy artillery and small arms firing from across the border Friday evening.
