Poonch: The Pakistani Army on Wednesday resorted to unprovoked firing on Indian positions along the Line of Control in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir today to which India retaliated, sources said.
Automatic weapons and mortars are reportedly being used in the firing, which has been going on since 6:50 pm.
Pakistani troops resorted to firing on forward areas along Sabjian belt of Poonch district, a defence spokesman told the Press Trust of India.
"Due to the provocation the Indian troops appropriately responded," the spokesman said, adding that firing exchanges were going on intermittently since then.
Early in September, India had lodged a strong protest with Pakistan over repeated ceasefire violations along the border between the armies of the two countries.
