Fresh firing at LoC in Rajouri as Pakistan troops target Indian posts

Jammu: With security forces still engaged in sanitizing the Army base camp here after the terror attack by JeM fidayeens in wee hours of Saturday, fresh ceasefire violation was witness along the LoC in Rajouri by the Pakistani forces on Sunday evening.

Indian positions retaliated effectively and strongly

A senior police official said that a day after a woman was killed in Pakistani firing on the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, Pakistani troops on Sunday opened heavy shelling and firing in Rajouri district, targeting both Indian Army posts and civilian facilities.

He said that the Pakistani shelling affected Panjgrain, Khorinar, Rajdhani and Naika areas near the LoC, leading to fear and panic among the local people.

However, the Indian positions retaliated strongly and effectively, said the police official.

It may be mentioned here that a 65-year old woman, identified as Parveen Akhtar, died after she was hit by a splinter from a mortar shell fired by Pakistani Army on Saturday.

Sunday’s ceasefire violation by Pakistani Army in the last two days was the fourth.
