Pakistani Army on Sunday violated ceasefire along the Line of Control at two locations in Jammu and Kashmir. Firing was reported in Bhimber Gali sector at 9.45 am and in Ramgarh at 10.00 am, reported news agency ANI. The Indian army is currently retaliating. Firing is still on and there have been no reports of casualty so far.

On Saturday, Pakistan resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation along the LoC in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district. Pakistani troops fired 82 mm and 120 mortars on the Indian side and the Indian troops retaliated in equal measure, leading to intense shelling. Locals said they could see the sky light up with mortar shells.

The shelling in KG sector comes close on the heels of Indian Army killing 13 terrorists trying to infiltrate into Kashmir from across the LoC.

More details awaited.

      The fomidable Indian Army is led by a formidable General Rawat. Easy for him to handle it. Note newspapers like The Tribune haver links via the Chief Editor's family to outside elements. They are trying to change the history of our region. For example after his battle with Purus in the Jehlum region Alexander withdrew. Who won no one knows Thus Alexander never entered India of today. Greek coins found in India are via trade. Alexander was in Iran, staniPanjab, etc., but never in any region of India today. Besides his gerneral Seleucus was soundly defeated by Changragupt and the formers's territoriers seized.

        They know India is not a big threat, and that is why they keep breaching LoC. We read a lot of urances from our army/navy chiefs that no one will threaten India's sovereignty. That is all happens at the end of the day when LoC is breached.
