Pakistan troops violated the ceasefire in Nowshera town of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday. According to news agency ANI, no Indian casualties have been reported so far. Reportedly, a gunbattle is underway along with intermittent firing from Pakistan’s side.
The “unprovoked” firing comes after a string of ceasefire violations last week by Pakistan.

Ever since the surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army on 29 September to destroy terror launchpads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Pakistan has stepped up cross-border firing and has violated the Line of Control ceasefire at least 20 times, reports ANI.
“We are in a state of alert,” the officer said. “Despite the present lull, threat is ever-present, as the enemy cannot be trusted — especially after the surgical strikes (along the LoC on September 29)” an Army officer at a forward location in Nowshera sector had said Monday.
More details awaited.
