In continued incidents of ceasefire violation along the borders in Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked small arms fire on three forward Indian positions along the Line of Control in Balakiote sector Friday evening.
Confirming this, a defence ministry spokesman Lt Colonel Maneesh Mehta said that small arms fire from across the LoC continued from 1650 to 1730 hrs. The Indian side too retaliated with equal caliber weapons, he added.
Significantly, the latest ceasefire violation from Pakistan side has been third along the LoC since Tuesday.
On Wednesday night, a group of armed terrorists had tried to sneak into the Indian territory from across the LoC in Balakote area. The alert troops, however, opened fire making them to flee back to the side of Pakistan occupied Kashmir. The previous day also, terrorists had made an unsuccessful attempt to cross over the LoC in the same area.
