While Pakistan Rangers used mortars and automatics to target Indian positions in Akhnoor sector of the international border here on Tuesday, its army used even heavier mortars to indiscriminately target military and civilian positions in Rajouri and Poonch districts.
“They (Pakistan Army) used 120 mm and 82 mm mortar shells to target military and civilian positions in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district and in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district yesterday (Tuesday),” a defence official said.
