Officials said, on Tuesday that a soldier was injured as Pakistan resorted to heavy mortar shelling and firing from small arms on forwarding posts and villages at three places along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to a defense spokesman, the Indian Army fired back after an unprovoked firing from across the border which took place in the Nowshera and Sunderbani sectors in Rajouri district and the Krishna Ghati sector in Poonch district.
An Indian soldier had a bullet injury in the firing from across the border while he was guarding a forward post in Kalal area of Nowshera sector, said official sources. The sepoy was admitted to a hospital.
The Pakistani troopers first targeted forward posts and villages in Nowshera around 11:30 am and the fight on the cross-border continued for some time, said the defense spokesperson.
He also claimed that at 10:30 pm ceasefire violation was reported from the Sunderbani area. As per last reports by the Indian army, the cross-border shelling was not stopped and that it was the third ceasefire violation by Pakistan.
Last week, along LoC, four civilians including three members of a family were killed and many others were injured after 60 ceasefire violations by Pakistan. On February 26, India carried out air strike at a Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist camp in Balakot after February 14 suicide bombing in Pulwama in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed.
