Pakistan violate ceasefire on LoC in Poonch, one civilian injured

Jammu: Pakistan Army on Saturday again violated the ceasefire on the Line of Control (LoC) at three places in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, injuring a civilian.

Ceasefire violation at all these three places by Pakistan Army started within one hour today morning

Pakistan ceasefire violation has come on a day when Defence Minister Rajnath Singh is visiting the state.

Defence sources said Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked shelling with mortars and firing of small arms first in Krishna Ghati, then in Mankote and Shahpur sectors of the LoC.

“Ceasefire violation at all these three places by Pakistan Army started within one hour today morning.

“Our troops are retaliating effectively. Firing exchanges are still going on between the two sides,” sources said adding that the injured civilian who was a panchayat member, has been shifted to a hospital for treatment.
