Indian, Pakistani Army trade fire on LoC

Jammu: Pakistan resorted to indiscriminate shelling and firing on Tuesday on the Line of Control (LoC) in two sectors of Jammu and Kashmir, a defence official said.

The Pakistani Army initiated the unprovoked firing in Bhimber Gali and Poonch sectors along the LoC, Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta said. The firing started at 6.45 a.m., using small arms, automatics and mortars. The Indian Army was retaliating "strongly and effectively", Mehta added.

The district administration in Rajouri has shut down 16 schools close to the LoC indefinitely. It has also ordered migration of the civilian population to safer places.This was after a soldier and a child were killed on Monday in Pakistani shelling on the LoC in Rajouri. In Uri sector too, a soldier and two civilians were injured in ceasefire violation by Pakistan on Monday.
