JAMMU: Pakistani troops violated ceasefire in Rajouri-Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday, shelling Indian positions with mortar bombs and using automatic arms.
“There was unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Bhimber Gali (BG) Sector from 1630 hours on Wednesday,” PRO Defence said.
An Army Captain was injured in fresh exchange of fire between India and Pakistan army along the line of control in Rajouri-Poonch sectors on Wednesday.
According to reports Pak army violated ceasefire agreement by resorting to use of 82 mm mortars and automatic weapons firing on the forward Indian posts in the Bhimber Gali sector around 4.30 PM. The Indian army appropriately responded using similar calibre of weapons.
Till late evening official sources have not confirmed the nature of injury sustained by the army officer during the heavy shelling in Tarkundi area.
Several forward villages were also targeted by the Pak army using long range mortars triggering fresh wave of terror in the area.
According to eyewitness reports gathered from local residents in the area several forward villages were hit by the 82 mm mortars late Wednesday evening as Pak army deliberately escalated the ladder of tension in the area.
Large number of people ran to safety and stay put inside safe places in their houses.
According to Lt Col Munish Mehta, Defence PRO in Jammu, Pak army resorted to unprovoked firing in the BG sector on Wednesday around 4.30 PM.
Till the time of filing the report the firing was going  on in the forward area.
This was the 30th ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir since the Indian army carried out surgical strikes in PoK to destroy terror launching pads.
