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.
