Jammu, Feb 2 : Pakistan troops again violated ceasefire through unprovoked firing with small arms and shelling with mortars on the Line of Control (LoC) on Tuesday in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district.
Defence Ministry spokesman Colonel Devender Anand said that the ceasefire was violated in Mankote Sector around 2.45 pm, to which the Indian Army retaliated befittingly.
Pakistan had violated the ceasefire in the same Sector on Monday as well.
Pakistan has been violating the bilateral ceasefire agreement signed with India in 1999. Lives of thousands of people living in border villages along the LoC in J&K have become miserable because of cross-border shelling that endangers human lives, cattle, property and agricultural fields.
