Jammu: The Pakistan Army opened heavy fire and shelled mortars at forward posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district on Saturday, prompting Indian troops to retaliate, officials said.

“At about 1645 hours today, the Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and intense shelling with mortars along the LoC in Nowshera sector in district Rajouri,” a defence spokesman said.

The Indian Army retaliated befittingly, he said.

On Friday, JCO Naib Subedar Ravinder died after being injured in shelling by Pakistan in Nowshera sector, spokesman said.
