Intensifying action, Pakistan troops on Monday violated ceasefire four times by resorting to heavy
mortar shelling and firing on Indian Army posts and civilian areas along LoC in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir, leaving five civilians injured and several shops ablaze.

Reports said in the retaliatory action by the Indian Army, one Pakistani post Twiven1 has been been destroyed. The firing and shelling is going on in various areas along the LoC, officials said.

 

Pakistan resorted to firing and shelling in Shahpur, Krishnagati, Mandi and Sabzian sectors in Poonch district, officials said.

“Pakistan troops resorted to unprovoked firing in Mandi and Sabzian sectors of Poonch district from 1345 hours today,” Defence spokesman Col Manish Mehta said. They fired 120 mm, 80 mm mortar bombs, automatic weapons and small arms, he said, adding the exchanges are going on.

Earlier, Pakistani troops violated ceasefire in Poonch using small arms, automatic and mortar bombs (in Shahpur) in Poonch, the spokesman said. “It has appropriately been responded to, we have given them befitting reply. The ceasefire violation is still on,” he said.

A Police officer said the firing started at around 1045 hours and is going on. Pakistan troops resorted to brief firing in Krishnagati sector of Poonch district around 0100 hours, officials said.

In shelling, five people were injured in Shahpur Kerni and Saujian sectors, officials said, adding the injured have been hospitalised.

Meanwhile, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and briefed him about the security situation in the wake of a fidayeen attack on an army camp in Baramulla and the ceasefire violations by Pakistan.

 

Doval’s meeting with the Prime Minister comes after the late Sunday night attack by fidayeen militants on a 46 Rashtriya Rifles army camp in Baramulla, which was foiled. Two Border Security Forces troopers were injured, one of who died later.

                      India is a signatory to Geneva convention. It means, we can't kill war prisoners. If we do, where will we stand morally and what do we tell the international community? Would we get respect?

                              stan Army has to convince that they are returning 'the LOC cross fire' so will resort to it. If common sense prevails they should admit, it was the terrorists that Indian military struck - not stani people or territory. They are fighting and still not winning terrorists in the interior of stan so should appreciate India for having done this in support of action against terrorists

                                Here comes another . Have you seen Indians at UAE airports ? they do toilet cleaning, in US they do even worse jobs. Let me show you the mirror. India is home to quarter of the world's poorest people. For 60 years, stan's per capita income was well ahead of India. India is home to the some of the largest slums of the world. 65% of Indian potion live below poverty line, over 600 million Indians defecate in open. India is the most raciest country on the face of earth. India is called the rap3 country of the world. Its the only country, where cow is more expensive than milk. Indian PM Modi has flourished Cow industry. Cow slaughter is a crime. Dalits and lower castes are considered untouchables. 2 people die of hunger every minute. Hats off to your government who are burning billions on weapons to protect the slums dwellers who are dying because of hunger. stan only import few medicines which are expensive in US/EU, other stan has an a very good pharma industry and exports medicines as well. You can continue your rant by picking specific news item. That doesn't change the ground reality in India, poverty, rap3, rac!sm. Enjoy these, while your corrupt government import more weapons while feeding you propaa of fear.
