According to defence spokesman, an unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan army in Nowshera sector’s Jhanger area started on Saturday evening at around 3.45 pm, using 82 mm mortars, automatics and small arms.

He said that the Indian Army has been responding befittingly to the enemy fire.

It may be mentioned here that this is the fifth ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops in the region in this month.
