"Indian Army will continue retaliatory measures and retain right to punitively respond to ceasefire violations. Support for terrorism by the Pakistan Army is unacceptable," Lieutenant General A K Bhatt told his Pakistani counterpart.
"The time has come to act and silence the Pakistani guns as the residents of border areas, since July last year, have suffered unimaginable losses due to unprovoked Pakistani firing and shelling," he said interacting with people in Gandhi Nagar in Jammu.
The Pakistan Army initiated indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars in the Krishnagati sector of Poonch district. The firing in the Krishnagati sector began around 6 am and the Indian troops retaliated effectively.
