On India's R-Day, Pakistan targets Indian Army on LoC

Jammu (IANS) On India's Republic Day, Pakistani troops fired at and shelled Indian Army positions on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district.

Defence Ministry sources said the Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked firing and shelling in Krishna Ghati sector in violation of the 2003 bilateral ceasefire pact.

"Pakistan Army initiated ceasefire violation around 11 a.m. using small arms fire and mortar shells... Our troops retaliated strongly and effectively. Firing exchanges are still going on," an official said.

Tension has gripped the civilian population living close to the LoC in Mankote and other places in Krishna Ghati sector.
