Indian, Pakistani troops trade fire along LoC in Poonch
Jammu: The Indian and Pakistani troops traded fire and shells for the third consecutive day along the Line of Control in Poonch district on Tuesday, officials said.
The firing and shelling from across the border in Poonch district’s Mankote and Mendhar sectors along the Line of Control (LoC) started at 6 am, a defence spokesman said, adding the Indian Army “retaliated and gave a befittingly reply”.
The cross-border firing and shelling was continuing when last reports were received, a police official said.
There is no report of any casualty in the Pakistani shelling, which has caused panic among those living along the LoC, he said.
The nearby Kirni and Qasba sectors witnessed heavy Pakistani shelling in the past two days.
