Defence Ministry spokesperson Lt Colonel Manish Mehta said that the shelling from across the LoC started around 7.10 am. Initially, it was restricted to 82 mm mortar shells, but soon Pakistani troops started firing 120 mm mortars and RPGs, he added.

        If you see the history of stan that they join with dialogue with India one hand and other hand they will violate all agreements besides supporting terrorist infiltrators to come inside India to destablise India. This is not new for us to see or listen. We should not believe at all for ever. Even USA was get cheated earlier on many occasions.

            Hahaha my dear its not stan, it"s India who starts all this and blames stan. India is sending RAW agents inside stan thru Aghanistan who are involved in terrorist activities inside stan and on the otherwise India wants to talk with stan only on terrorism whereas he is the only one supporting it.
