Heavy LoC shelling in Poonch

Intense mortar-shelling and firing from small arms erupted at forward areas along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district on Monday, a defence spokesperson said.
The heavy shelling and firing from across the border in Balakote and Krishna Ghati sectors drew a strong and befitting response from the Indian Army, the spokesperson said.
In the first act of ceasefire violation of the day, the Pakistani troops opened fire on forward posts in Balakote sector around 10.15 am, the spokesperson said.
The cross-border firing between the two sides continued for quite some time, but there was no report of any casualty on the Indian side, he added.
Officials said the Pakistan Army personnel also fired mortar shells at Tarkundi.
The Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire again by resorting to unprovoked firing from small arms and intense mortar shelling in Krishna Ghati sector around 6.35 pm, the spokesperson said.
The shelling is still going on and further details are awaited, he added.
On Sunday, the Pakistani troops had resorted to heavy shelling in Mankote, Shahpur, Kirni and Krishna Ghati sectors.
