The Pakistani forces started using mortars, automatics and small arms from 5 pm, defence ministry spokesperson Lt Colonel Manish Mehta said here Wednesday, adding that Indian forces retaliated.
Mehta said there had been no casualty or damage on the Indian side till reports last came in.
Sources said the situation was “live” along the entire LoC in Pallanwala area of Akhnoor as Pakistani troops targeted more than half-a-dozen places on the Indian side.
They also fired mortars and used automatic weapons along the LoC in Sunderbani area of Rajouri district and Balnoi in Poonch district, according to information.
The night-long shelling in Pallanwala, Naushera and Krishna Ghati areas had stopped in the early hours of Wednesday.
Pakistani troops have resorted to unprovoked firing on the Indian side along the LoC at frequent intervals almost every day since the Army’s Special Forces carried out surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the Line of Control on September 29.
The International Border in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts, however, continues to remain peaceful.
