This is the third incident of ceasefire violation in the past nine days along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir. On April 28, Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire by firing on Indian posts along the LoC in Bhimber Gali in Rajouri district.
Earlier on April 25, they had fired with small arms and mortars on Indian posts in Doda battalion areas in Poonch district.
“There were inputs that militants were trying to infiltrate to this side and the firing was probably a ploy to ensure infiltration of terrorist under the cover of it,” an army officer said.
