Pakistani troops on Thursday night pounded nearly half a dozen Indian posts with mortar shells and rockets in Krishna Ghati sector in J&K’s Poonch district.

The heavy shelling was apparently aimed at pushing in a fresh batch of militants from across the LoC and also to divert attention of troops engaged in combing operations to flush out militants hiding in nearby Beri Rakh forests in Mendhar for the past one week. The Indian posts targeted by the Pakistani troops fall in the infiltration route of militants,sources said.

Brigadier General Staff (BGS) Satish Dua said the Pakistani troops resorted to heavy caliber weapon fire. “We too retaliated,” he added.

Firing started around 9 pm and continued till midnight . There was no loss of life or damage to property.
