Pakistani troops on Saturday shelled mortars along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district, drawing a strong retaliation from the Indian Army, a defence spokesperson said.
There are no immediate report of any casualty, he said.
“At about 6:45 PM, Pakistan initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and shelling mortars along LoC in Nowshera sector. The Army is retaliating befittingly,” the spokesperson said.
The cross-border shelling was going on when last reports were received, he added.
