“Pakistan troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violations in Sunderbani and Krishnagati sectors in Rajouri and Poonch district from 1700 hours and 1730 hours today,” Defence PRO Manish Mehta said.
A senior army officer said ceasefire violations have also taken place in Mendhar sector of Poonch and Macchil sector of Kupwara.
There have been eight ceasefire violations since Tuesday along LoC.
Mehta said Pakistan troops shelled mortar bombs and fired from automatic and small weapons.
Indian Army appropriately responded and there were no causalities on this side, he said.
In wake of the increasing violations, BSF has increased deployment of its troops along IB and technical equipment have been reinforced.
“We have increased the deployment (along IB),” BSF Director General K K Sharma said.
Yesterday, Pakistan troops violated ceasefire five times and targeted 10 forward areas with mortar shelling and firing on Indian posts and civilian areas along LoC in Jammu, Poonch and Rajouri districts.
One jawan is reported to have suffered minor injuries in the action by Pakistani troops on Tuesday.
