The Indian troops resorted to unprovoked and indiscriminate firing on Pakistan Army posts along LoC in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir since midnight. The Pak Army also gave befitting reply to the enemy, however, no casualties or loss of life was reported. Previously, several civilians were killed and many others injured in incidents of cross-border firing by India.
